Slander Case/Defamation : LUSENET : Law Of The Workplace : One Thread

I work in a company where some of the workers started a vicious/slandering rumor about me. Since then, i have been the but of jokes, personal attacks, gestures, etc. from other staff. Even some of the staff in my HR department have made derogatory statements, and i dont feel comfortable in dealing with them either. I have a meeting with the President. Is this a slander/defmation case, it is a known lie (I was born a woman) and they are going around saying that i am a trans-sexual, which is totally false. Is it possible to get them into court and have them testify under oath to see who started this nasty rumor, please advise.
