Today, I found out that a new coworker was spreading false rumours about me. I confronted her. and she basically ran to management and said I intimidated her even though other colleagues discredited her claims. She now continues spreading the rumours with her fake intimidation charges on top of it all. FML

OK first rule of dealing with a toxic work environment, document document document and go to HR every time and document that, too. Don't confront any coworkers. Always go to the head of the chain and report it.

This. And, when you go to HR, use the phrase "hostile work environment". Even if HR doesn't care about you, they care about protecting the company from actionable stuff like that.

I heard that you pilfer office supplies, share company secrets with competitors and are boning the boss's wife. Are you saying these are not true? Just as I was beginning to like you...
