White Lie…..Blind Eye

White Lie…..Blind Eye

Were you totally honest in your job application? Did you stretch the truth and can your employer fire you if they find out?

The answer is, well it depends…

Firstly, was the lie a big one, or a white lie where you enhanced previous experience? If it was a minor enhancement, and your employer is satisfied with your work, they may decide to either take up the issue, or simply ignore it.

However, if, for example, you were a chauffeur who lied about your previous driving record, your employer could take the view that would not have employed you had they been aware of the situation.

 

The best advice is to stick to the truth.
