Oral or spoken defamation. Slander is the act of harming one person’s reputation by telling one or more other people something that is untrue about that person.


Libel involves publishing a statement about someone in written form or via broadcast (in the securities industry the publication is on the form U-4 and U-5) that is untrue and would harm the reputation or livelihood of that person.

Libel is considered a civil wrong (tort) and can be the basis of a lawsuit.
