Can I sue my boss for defamation if he made an untrue statement about me?
Question Details: My co-worker got fired a few months ago. She is suing the company because of unpaid vacation time and commission. She is also suing them because during our busy season our manager doesn't let us work overtime and needs us to finish our work within the 8 hour shift. They ran a report and we were working a 12 hour work load in 8 hour shifts. Due to all the stress and anxiety, many people didn't take breaks or eat lunch at their desks. My boss recently went to court and saw my friend there and told her that I wrote a letter about her staying that I would go to breaks with her everyday. I never wrote a letter about her and I don't know how to confront my boss.
