Legal Answers
Q. Can you sue for defamation of character if you are fired after a customer lied about you?
A: The tort of slander prohibits someone from publishing or making a false statement or defamatory statement, known to be false. So while you could make a claim against the customer, a matter of opinion isn’t going to help you if that’s the customers opinion. How would you ever prove the customer was lying? That would be the question. If it’s something black or white like somebody said you hit them and you didn’t, then you have more of a likelihood of success. In this instance, unless there was a clearly factual, false statement, I don’t see any potential legal claim.
Q. I have not been paid for my work as an IC in the agreed-to time frame.
A: The terms of your independent contractor agreement will dictate what the obligation is of the company to pay you. Beyond that obviously if you’re not paid money that you’re due pursuing to contractual agreement then of course you can pursue legal action. But we would need more fax to determine the exact date you should be paid and if there’s a breach of that agreement whether it’s oral or a written agreement. Another question is whether you in fact or really an independent contractor or an employee but again, without more facts, we could not answer that question.
Q. Am I entitled to pay for suspension turned into unpaid leave after being exonerated of alleged misconduct?
A: Generally speaking, if you’re working for a private employer, they can do what they want. If you had a contract at guaranteed you income, then I think you have a potential claim.
