‘Dishonesty’ can consist of any act or omission which entails deceit. This may include withholding information from the employer, or making a false statement or misrepresentation with the intent of deceiving the employer.

A misrepresentation by an employee before the commencement of employment has been held to be sufficient to warrant dismissal, even if the misrepresentation is discovered some time later and the employee has rendered satisfactory performance. A charge of dishonesty requires proof that the person acted with intent to deceive.
