Yea.. that sounds like defamation/slander and you can actually sue her if her actions actually cost you a job; might even get her fired as a result since her actions then reflect badly on the company as a whole. Sounds like the karma she deserves.

The buck doesn't stop with the secretary. If she's feigning ignorance of you as a vendetta, the other company should ask to speak to your former boss, to clarify that they too haven't heard of you.

The secretary is the gatekeeper to the company. If the secretary won't put them through to the boss, they can't ask them.

This sort of shit is lawsuit-worthy, though. You should get in contact with your internship company's HR and let them know what the secretary did. They will help you out and at least ensure that it won't happen again.

You should sue her. She stole your lunch repeatedly, which is horrible, but now her lies are impacting your career. You have a slam dunk case.

There has to be proof that you were an intern there. Everything is documented these days and wtf is a secretary doing talking to the other employer. That’s not her place

OP should demand the company explain its employee’s illegal actions, in writing, to the new company and remove the involved employee. If the company refuses either step, sue them too.

Never burn bridges with anyone you work with, no matter how insignificant they may seem to your career. People are petty. It sounds from the wording you waited until your way out to say anything to her. That makes petty people devious.

There are reasons that employers are so extremely careful about what they say during reference checks.

Clearly she didn't learn them. She's setting up both herself and her company for a massive lawsuit. I can only assume she's planning to quit, otherwise she wouldn't possibly be this stupid.
