    Default Libelous Statements Made By Employer In Alaska

    Thursday I e-mailed my supervisor that I would not be able to come to work due to my child being ill. My supervisor responded by asking me if I had been out drinking the prior evening.

    The e-mails went back and forth; as my supervisor went on to accuse another employee & myself of calling in after a night of drinking on a separate occasion and stating that I appear to be disconnected with those around me. After repeatedly trying to defend myself against this false accusations I decided it was best to contact our HR Dept and disengage in communication with my supervisor for the moment as I felt is was inappropriate, unwarranted & harassing. Our H/R dept. instructed me to contact my supervisor and their immediate supervisor, which I did.

    I am in a management position and have never encountered this type or any other type of libel communication by my supervisor.

    I have not yet heard anything back as my supervisor's supervisor was out of the office the last part of the week and will not be back until Monday.

    I didn't go to work the next day because I was incredibly uncomfortable and did not want to be exposed to any type of altercation with my supervisor.

    What reasonable expectation should I have once Monday is here?

    You should expect to be fired for your no-call, no-show on Friday.

    And for the record, while I am not defending your supervisor, what he did does not reach the level of libel, slander, or defamation of any kind.

    I did call in Friday and offered to work the weekend. I was denied to work the weekend, as was everyone else in the dept.
    As far as not being considered libel, slander or defamation of any kind; I would have to say that at the least her accusations were extremely inappropriate and should not be taken lightly.

    They might have been inappropriate but would not be considered libel/slander/defamation.
