My question involves defamation in the state of: Texas
A co-worker threatened to slander me directly in front of our superior. She said," You better stop talking, or else I will embarass you by exposing personal details both work and non work related". She also said, "I know all of your dirt". HR got involved and the girl wasn't even written up. It seems as though they just want to push it under the rug. Now the girl is going around talking to all of the other managers about me and I am afraid she is going to damage my reputation and prevent me from getting a promotion to AVP. Any advice? Should I just let it go and forget about it?
