Court Ruling In Defamation Case .. Employer Was Right

A man who sued his former employer over a bad job reference has lost the $800,000 dollar defamation case after the Ontario court ruled his negative evaluation was accurate. Lawyers for Stokes Economic Consulting say the firm offered to give Adam Papp a reference after firing him and had planned to praise his technical abilities. But they say a prospective employer kept asking about Papp’s interactions with others and the firm told the truth — that Papp did not get along with his coworkers.  The court ruled that companies should be allowed to give their honest opinion in a job reference, as long as there is no malicious intent.
