Re: Lying on a resume?

It's become quite common for employers to state on applications (or even employment agreements) that the discovery of any information on an application or a résumé to be inaccurate or fraudulent is grounds for immediate withdrawal of an offer of employment, or immediate termination if employment has already begun.

I get that your friend is trying to get and keep work, and in this economy it's tough (I'm in the process of losing my job due to "organizational restructuring" myself), but, man, this company has really put the screws to him in an awful way -- and Marc is right, if the company issuing the contract for that work were to find out of falsifications, your friend would be thrown under the bus in about two seconds flat, and suddenly there's a hole in his résumé thanks to the lovely term, "involuntary termination."
