Let’s face it, the job market is extremely competitive and jobseekers everywhere are doing whatever it takes to land a job - including stretching the truth or outright lying on resumes, applications and in interviews. With a record number of candidates contacting recruiters, it is imperative to exercise due diligence. You can’t afford not to - a bad hire is a costly mistake with potential legal implications.
Employers who fail to exercise due diligence in their hiring practices risk hiring criminals, unqualified workers and can leave themselves exposed to workplace violence, theft or litigation.
