Re: Lying on a resume?

It's a dangerous game that company is playing... Not only would it look bad for the employees if they are caught, but it will definitely follow the company around. If they are caught, depending on the size and reputation of the company, any future potential employers could likely balk at hiring an applicant that worked there.

I propose taking the higher ground here. There are ways to beef up a resume without lying and I think your friend needs to make a stand (hopefully with other like-minded employees)...

If he wants to escalate (especially if he is threatened with being fired if he doesn't comply), he should consider whistleblowing to a higher authority about it (if there is somewhere higher he can go)...
