Through Naukri.com’s HR news digest, I came across the website www.lay-off.org . One of the posts is a complaint against employers who have begun to scrutinise their employees’ résumés for possible misinformation.  When false information is found, the employee is dismissed. The complaint is that padding résumés was widely practised and with the knowledge of recruiters during the years of plenty. But now in these lean times, it provides employers with the means to lay-off staff without admitting to it. What I find dismaying is the writer does not express remorse over misleading an employer. The writer’s remorse is in being held accountable for the deception.
