In these times, many people are desperate for a job, and they may go to some length to secure employment. Even if it means embellishing their job applications or CV’s, or simply leaving out relevant information. In a recent CCMA arbitration award the employee failed to disclose that he had been employed by the same employer a couple of years previously, and that he resigned while an investigation into his alleged dishonesty had been pending. The employee’s excuses and responses, including that he did not feel that the information was relevant and that he had compiled his CV in a hurry, did not work, and the CCMA commissioner concluded that the employer had a valid and fair reason for dismissing the employee.
