If a person is posting falsehoods about you on Facebook - especially ones that are effecting your job - you do have several things you can do. First
of all you can report the posts and FB will take them down. You might also have grounds for litigation for any lost wages or pain and suffering due to
In the meantime... if your job does act upon these false claims you would also be able to file against them for whatever might apply, from demotion,
suspension, termination, etc.
Honestly, I'd simply approach my boss and deal with the issue directly. Let them know that you've got nothing to hide and that you do not, at all,
appreciate being singled out over baseless charges made by a coworker on a social networking site. If it's a large company you can file a grievance
with human resources.
All that aside, I can tell that you are upset by this, and rightfully so. But allowing yourself to be upset does you no good. Use that energy towards
proactively dealing with this problem. Personally I'd tell my boss "Investigate me all you want. And when you find out the accusations are false, I
do expect you to terminate the other party."
I hope this helps and the best of luck to you.
