Will Glassdoor remove a review that I flag as false and defamatory?
Updated 30 August, 2018
Glassdoor doesn't take sides in factual disputes. Our reviewers tell us that they believe their reviews reflect their true experiences. And they take responsibility for what they post. So if you, or your lawyers, contact us to say that something in a review is untrue and defamatory, we don't know who to believe. Unless we find some other violation of our policies, we allow our users to stand by their reviews.
Of course, if it's obvious to us that a review is false based on our access to reliable information from an independent source (such as facts in an article by a reputable news outlet), we'll remove the review. But please understand that we are a neutral forum for the content submitted by our users, not a news organization. So it is not our role to investigate and fact check each statement in a review. If you offer to send us your own evidence, we'll politely decline. We simply aren't suited to determine the accuracy, completeness, or authenticity of evidence offered to us by someone with in interest in getting a negative review taken down. And please remember, content decisions are within our sole discretion and we don't negotiate about them.
