Inconsistency in employment

Dear HR Fraternity /Experienced professionals,

I have to take a decision asap regarding an employee as he has faked his employment. Based on the employment verification details provided it has been found the candidate's experience during his initial career is inconsistent to what he had provided while joining ;inconsistency in his profile is ranging from 3-6months .

However the remaining tenure served (i.e 4yrs) at various capacities and organisation has been provided as actuals ;also Social/moral and professional conduct has been verified as good.In such a situation do you think I must reconsider his employment only due to initial incoherent information provided ?

Seeking all you HR professionals sincere advice in this regard soon .

Re: Inconsistency in employment

hi sangeeta,

It goes by your organisational values. I represent a consulting organisation. Recently we found that one of our candidate did not want to accept or take up the assignment with our client after the offer. When my colleague spoke to him we realised that he has some issues similar to this. We adivced the candidate not to take up this offer and also informed our client about it. We have incurred a financial loss of about a lakh of Rupees. We consiously decided that we will go with the value we have that we will alway act with highest level of integritiy.

I advice that you go buy the organisational value rather than personal value. Personally too I would not recommend it.

Regards,
narayan

If you look in terms Values, Ethics and Attitude ....... the answer is No. On business point of view, if he is expectionally good, You can consider. Preferably dont cosider he can apply the same attitude at some point in the business which can hamper the company.

Re: Inconsistency in employment

Hi

Confront him politely. If he confesses immediately, has a genuine reason behind it and as you’ve said his conduct has been good, you may consider his employment. This is the purpose of an HR department to understand and not just to work by rules. I do not agree to Madhu’s views. I think we should first understand the situation completely before we take a decision, because where human resources are concerned it is the matter of someone’s life, future, career at stake.

Re: Inconsistency in employment

One should also try to find out the reason for faking employment data. At times people get into shady organisations which only after joining they realise and when they change over they are persuaded by the placement consultants to fake the employment history as the client does not appreciate inconsistency.
