Our expert says:
Certainly it's unpleasant - wouldn't it be weird if it didn't bother us at all ? But if they don't know you at all, then whatever they're saying isn't valid or important ( and presumably you have only heard this from someone else, who may have their own motives for telling you this ? )
Maybe we need more actual details to understand the situation you're in. If what they're saying is just untrue, catty and rude, why would they bother to say it at all ?
Is there an HR person o Department you can discuss this with ?
