Hi There, I am an independant consultant in the Health and Social Care sector. I was forwarded an email from a previous company I worked at, an email from the MD who was appointed after me with this section in: 'This is very concerning, as Lorna has a restraining covenant in her contract withSurecare. As well as being a failed Managing Director who was being exited from thecompany for poor performance, she is named with the courts as a bankrupt and therefore notallowed to advise anyone on their business.' I can evidence that everything in it is untrue, an absolute defamation of my professional and personal character. What can I do? Lorna Lyons-Smith
The email was originally sent to a current client of mine, a franchisee: I used to be the MD at the company who sent him the email, the franchisee, my client, found me on the UKHCA website when I opened my own consultancy business and he was looking for support in business development, this contact was long after any restrictive convenants had expired.
I resigned from the company after being head hunted by another company: I have never been bankrupt.
Thank you for the response, what do you suggest I do next?
