Defamation in Pennsylvania

Defamation occurs when someone publishes a false statement about another person.  Publication may be in writing (often called “libel”) or verbal (often called “slander”).

A statement is not defamatory if it is true.  In addition, employers are given additional protection against otherwise defamatory statements made directly to an employee – called a privilege—in order to encourage employers to be direct and frank with employees.  An employer may abuse this privilege and be subject to a defamation claim.
