HI Miracle,

I am sorry to say there is no law being broken here. Slander is when someone says something about you that results in loss of wages or causes you to lose money somehow, and the statements must not be true. You have not lost anything money wise because of this, so there is no crime.

May I respectfully suggest that you talk in person to your mother-in-law ASAP and explain to her just what you explained to me. Also you may want to talk to Yvonne's supervisor at JC Penny and ask them to tell this Yvonne person to stop spreading rumors about you at her work(JC Penny's) because you have relatives that work there. That should help also.

Also tell your husband what has happened and that you are dealing with it. Let him know that you are being up front and honest that its not you and you want to put a stop to the rumors.

I hope this helps, sorry that I can not help you as far as a crime goes. If you need further advice just let me know.
Akim
