While explicit and implied defamation by individuals or groups has been discussed at length, employees' defamatory comments on employers seldom get enough attention. Legal scholarship in this regard had become necessary given the rise in such cases. This essay focuses on the defamation in the online world over social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. The main focus is on the cyber defamation of an employer by an employee. This area of law is not developed in India, and with vast increments in technology, the cases of the same would inevitably emerge in large numbers. Examples of various nations have been given, and analysis of a few cases will be done too.
