Although generally not good practice on behalf of the manager and it may in fact violate their company policy, the manager may not be a violation of any laws making his or her acts illegal.  I say that generally because state law may differ and you could have rights only a lawyer in your area would know.  Now, if the manager is engaging in defamation  - libel (written) and slander (oral) - statements that are just untrue and exposes you to some sort or hatred or ridicule, etc. (each state has its own definition), then you may have a case.  Speak with some one in your area.  Good luck.
