My question involves defamation in the state of: California
Two years ago I left a company and went to a competitor. Recently my former boss, who is the owner of the company, wrote the President of my current company and said I stole client information when I left and have been proactively soliciting their clients. Firstly, none of that is true (I donít even proactively engage clients) and secondly my former boss knows companies belong to the same industry associations and we receive client lists from those associations on a regular basis. While my boss told me not to worry about it Iím concerned about my reputation. I work in a very small industry (over 25 years now) and this kind of accusation could be damaging.
