Defamation often occurs at the workplace. Defamation comes in the form of both written (libel) and spoken (slander) statements and can be actionable even where there are no actual or provable damages sustained.

A defamatory statement must be published to a third party in order to be actionable and certain privileges apply to render otherwise defamatory statements non-actionable. These privileges particularly tend to apply in the context of defamation in the workplace.
