Lying during a recruitment is cause for termination

An employee lied during his recruitment interview. He claimed he had an experience as regional director which wasn’t true.

This previous experience was a requirement for the employer. Therefore, the cassation court judged that the termination for grave misconduct was legit.

An employee cannot claim a false experience during his recruitment.

An employer can fire an employee for grave misconduct if the employee lied on his resume.

However, for such a termination to be valid, the employer must prove that because of the lie, the employee does not have the skills required for the job.
