Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
If they have made a complaint to the Police then they (Police) have a duty to investigate it
If you are found not guilty then sadly you can not sue the former employer under criminal law
They do not bring the case, the Crown (or Queen) does
As for a civil case, again sadly it is not the employer that brings the claim
There is nothing in civil law sadly you can do
The highest is defamation but sadly you would have to show you have suffered serious harm and issue proceedings in the High Court. If the matter is contested then you are looking at around £15,000 in legal fees to take it to trial
ok so thats really it then
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
thats great thank you
Can I help with anything else today?
no thats it thanks
