    The long and short of it:

    I was accused by my employer of theft then charged on 4 counts. I was cleared in court of all charges. I am now seeking assistance through workcover as I'm suffering PTSD.

    In a statement to a PI for workcover, the HR lady for the company I was employed for has said in her statement, "During interview with police, D admitted to having an ICE habit."

    In my recorded interview with police, the policeman said to me "I put it to you that you have a drinking and drug problem, don't you?"

    I never replied.

    In the printed form of statement to police there is no mention of this conversation?

    Who is out of line here.

    Please any suggestions appreciated

    What do want to do?

    Go for unfair dismissal? Sue HR and ex-employer for defamation? (Assuming you do not have a drug problem).
