  • Former Employer Trying to Interfere with Current Employment

    I’m currently employed in a position at a non-profit organization where my current supervisor has informed me that the head manager of my previous place of employment, also a non-profit organization, contacts him repeatedly in an effort to have me terminated. I left my previous employer over a year and a half ago. I was involuntarily terminated there after ten years allegedly for cause, but disputed those grounds and won my unemployment filing on appeal. My current organization is a funding source for other area non-profits, but I have nothing to do with those decisions, especially regarding my former employer. I don’t know if the continued harassment is occurring because of a fear I can discourage funding to them, but my supervisor has assured them several times that I have no input, so I must assume this campaign to have me terminated is from a personal resentment. My supervisor is trying to be diplomatic with them because there is a continuing business connection there, but is warning me about their targeting. It’s as if they never got over losing the unemployment appeal, and then finding out I was hired by one of their major funding sources, to boot. Is there anything I can do about this legally to get it stopped in Louisiana? Outside of having my reputation being slandered, my embarrassment, and the aggravation I’m experiencing, I have not suffered any tangible damages financially or in my current position. Thank you.

    It sounds like your former employer is building stories to ruin your reputation. This sounds like the textbook example of defamation, and this could follow you around for a while. I would seek out a civil lawyer in Dubai specializing in defamation and slander ASAP. I am not an attorney but you should seek legal advice from a licensed attorney in your region.
