I am a headhunter i put a comment on a public website about a case where a person sues an institution for a huge payout for discrimination . i said that "this person is just lazy and doesn't want to work and dishonest. I based my comments on a particular article where it was said that this person resigned and then rejoined , constantly went on long sick leaves and the court dismissed more than half of those claims because the person did not have evidence. i assumed that that if this person cannot prove more then half of her claims it means this person is dishonest and the fact that this person constantly off work sick because of the stress in my view is just lazy. can it be qualified as defamation or just as my opinion even though i am a headhunter and this person's reputation is already not great. thank you
Thank you very much Jo. I have one more question actually two if i may.
What could be an average damage claim for statements like mine and what can do to minimise the costs. Sincerely. M
