Were you supposed to rejoin? Consult with a civil lawyer asap to discuss about the matter.

Previously worked in a company which shut down for a particular time period, and so I collected unemployment for a few months before I found another job. I was never laid off or quit without notice. Just didn't rejoin. But now as I'm looking forward for a better employment opportunity, my previous employer reported that I did quit. This isn't true. What can I do now, as this might result in the loss of my present opportunity? Should I go for defamation? (for character, maybe?.. am not too sure)

Depends on the employer's contract. Were you supposed to rejoin? Consult with a civil lawyer asap to discuss about the matter. Too less facts here to give out a viable solution.

One more thing...

As I said, I collected unemployment benefits. Isn't it proof enough that I didn't quit? Else that wouldn't be allowed, right?
