We rejected a candidate in between the initial discussion through a job site and he started abusing us through the same portal. After we rejected the candidate, he and his friends started posting negative reviews on Google. Around ten members posted negative reviews within a short time. We don't know any of them other than the candidate we communicated. Fake and Fraud reviews are affecting our company very severely. I think blacklisting is possible, and there is no common platform available for HR persons in India. Please guide.

Dear member,

Disseminating false information constitutes a punishable offence under the provisions of Section 203 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC). Accordingly, you have the option to file a First Information Report (FIR) against the individuals responsible for spreading such misinformation. It is advisable to consult with a legal professional to determine if additional sections of the IPC may be applicable in this case.

Furthermore, you may seek a court order to have the defamatory posts removed from Google.

It is worth noting that filing an FIR may prompt the individuals in question to remove the posts voluntarily, potentially eliminating the need to approach Google. In some instances, they may even approach you seeking an apology.

While I acknowledge that pursuing both courses of action can be time-consuming and may incur costs, it is essential to take these steps to safeguard the company's reputation.

Taking legal action will send a message to the employees on the rolls of your company. They will know what could happen if they upload calumnious or malicious posts against your company in social media. So the legal action will act as a deterrent to them also.
