There was an incident where my employer claimed I did something (which I didn't do) that led to someone getting injured. They seemed to have investigated the issue internally but came to the wrong conclusion I was to blame. I was still in my probation so it was easy for them to fire me. I have learnt that management have involved my coworkers and have told them that I had done the thing which I didn't do, and have been asking them about my character.
Is this defamation? Even if it isn't I'm just curious, in court what would the request to the judge be if a party is committing defamation? It could be an order for the party to stop defaming comments but if they already made the statements, would it be a public statement that they were wrong?
