Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a qualified lawyer happy to help you today. I am just reviewing your question.
Is it defamation which you would like advice upon or employment law rights?
Thanks, ***** ***** I am only able to advise under the law of England and Wales - but there are Scots law experts on here so I will opt out to let one of those help you today. Please do not reply to this question as it will come back to me. Many thanks
Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
What reason did they provide for sending you home?
Thank you. I will get back to you with my answer as soon as I can, which will be at some point today. The system will notify you when this happens. Please do not reply in the meantime as this may unnecessarily delay my response. Many thanks.
Thank you. I do not see how this is a case of defamation I’m afraid. Being terminated or being unfriended on FB is not defamation.
First of all, certain conditions must be met for the statement to be classified as defamatory. These are:
1. There has to be a defamatory statement - the assessment that is often used to establish this is whether the statement tends to lower the claimant in the estimation of right-thinking members of society generally
3. The statement has been published by the defendant to a third party
4. The claimant must prove that the words complained of were published about him
You can of course challenge them over why they did this, but you will struggle to pursue it as defamation in court.
Does this answer your query?
But who will make these untrue statements about you? Until this happens you have no claim to even consider…
