CVs: The Whole Truth?

In light of the recent political scandal in which a main political party in the UK finessed areas of her CV, it is recommended that employers explore their legal positions in the discovery of a fraudulent CV.

If discovered during the pre-employment process, employers have the right to withdraw an offer before acceptance of the offer by the employee and if discovered during employment, the severity of the dishonesty should be judged on a case-by-case basis. Employers are encouraged to perform checks on employment history and assess verbiage in offers and contracts, as well as employee handbooks.
