Fake Qualifications

The rise of applicants producing fake qualifications to secure high - paying jobs

It is common for job applicants to lie about their qualifications on their curriculum vitae and the problem is far more prevalent than most employees realise.

It is vital that employers in the private and public should verify all information given by them by applicants as opposed to just taking their word for it. T his does not just include degrees, diplomas, certificates and courses, but also previous employees, job descriptions and duties performed.

Even though it is f raud to submit false qualifications and that empl oyers w ould be fully entitled to lay charges against th e perpetrators with the polic e, this does not automatically constitute dismissal. There is a process that has to be followed which includes a disciplinary hearing.

Employers in the private and public sector are now being called on to implement a thorough recruitment process, which includes background, reference and qualification checks for all employees.

The consequences are far - reaching and many employees do not seem to realise the repercussions of their actions. W ith the rise of employment and people not having permanent or secure jobs, they feel that this is the only way out.
