Speak the truth. Even if it doesn’t go your way, it’ll let him (and everyone else) know that you won’t take his shit, and maybe he’ll think twice before playing his stupid little games in the future.

Sleep on it. My sister went through the same thing and in the end she came out on top because she maintianed and held steady. I think you probably have a better chance if you let your emotions subside before you do or say anything. Im really sorry you are going through this:(

I’ve been in a similar position where a couple managers twisted something that went wrong at work and said it was completely my fault, when every other employee knew the truth. Can you go to the division head and ask him directly about it? Not accusing him, but say, “HR told me this, I’m afraid there is a misunderstanding?” And see what he tells you directly. He knows you never said it- or he is mixing you up with someone else, another thing that has happened to me. In HS I shared a name with someone who got in trouble frequently and ended up in trouble for something they did as a result. Either way, you may as well get the clarification, no matter how it turns out.

I agree you should wait for your emotions to calm though, so you don’t give them ANY true reason to speak against you.

Honestly, I would keep my mouth shut and just look elsewhere.
