ABSTRACT
The article deals with observing truthfulness in recruitment. According to the author, a lie may breach the duty of trust and confidence stated in every employment contract. The employee's breach may enable the employer to end the employment immediately without breaching the contract. He advised that employers should make sure they request appropriate information on application forms and warn candidates of the consequences of inaccuracy. He added that employers must also question interviewees carefully.
