Slander is known as oral defamation which is when someone harms and damages the character or reputation of another based on one or a series of malicious statements. Slander comes under tort law which means cases made against a defamer will be known as a civil wrong and can be actionable by a lawsuit. Claimants who win cases against defamers are often rewarded damages especially if malicious intent can be proven against the Defendant.
Serious malicious statements such as accusations of being a criminal, having a disease, or questioning one’s occupation are treated as slanderous which generally results in punitive damages to the Claimant. Defamatory statements spoken on radio or television are treated as libel as the broadcasting reaches a wider audience than most publications.
