Hi. Can anyone provide advice: An ex-employer learned the name of a prospective employer that the employee had been interviewed by. The ex-employer made an unsolicited phone call to the Managing Director of the prospective employer to tell him not to employe this person and made various negative statements about the person. The prospective employer was so shocked receiving this call and told the ex-employer that the call was totally inappropriate and unprofessional. The ex-employee learnt about this during the 2nd interview with the prospective employer who was concerned about the situation and suggested the candidate seek legal advice. Has the ex-employer defamed the character of his ex-employee ( defamation)? Does anyone know of a legal case I could read on a similar topic? At the time of writing, the prospective employer has not advised the candidate whether they were successful or not.
