This question relates to Norway, the business culture is northern. I have the following problem. I have been working as contractor for Organization X 7 years. Not one stretch but let's say 3 periods. My last period is 3 years in 2 teams. More than two years ago I have a conflict in one of the teams with one employee. So next 2 years were very good for me I had a great run delivered a lot of value for the organisation and also had good relationship with my colleagues and the organisation employees.
My contract ended and my CV was distributed to other departments in the Organization because my department was experiencing cuts. My CV was first picked by another department same one that owns the team i had issues previously. After they picking up my CV initially they rejected it which is very uncommon once it is picked up. Then after investigating I found out that there has been a case and investigation that has concluded that I am conflicting person. The result of this is that the whole department in this organisation which is one of the biggest (understand 20+ teams) has been closed for me and they can no longer be my client. What is shocking me is that usually when there is missunderstanding n one team a person is moved to another team, the shocking part here is that the whole department is now closed for me and my reputation may be ruined more or less. This may spread out into other departments once they learn of this. The conflict with the employee has been professional but this employee I believe claims that I have raised voice on her(something I don't agree with). She is also a leader and may have asked other colleagues to support her. I disagree with me raising voice in general and even if I had this is a very disproportionate measure which is hitting me back after 2 great years for the same organisation at different department. I am on my way to loose my contract. Do I have any options to defend myself or maybe I should let it go?
