Workplace defamation verdicts

Michael Fox at Jottings of an Employer's Lawyer has details on two recent jury awards, of $3 million in Maine and $1.5 million in Texas, against employers alleged to have defamed their employees by accusing them of wrongdoing. In the Maine case, Fox thinks defendant Merrill Lynch may have been placed in a "classic Catch-22" because federal securities regulations required it to report on the purported broker misconduct.
