How to Handle an Employee Who Lied About His Skills

How to Handle an employee who lied about his skills

You recently got a new hire for a position in your organization and l;

So you just hired the best fit for the job ( or so you thought!) and few weeks/months into the job, you realize he’s not the perfect fit. What happened? Didn’t he say he could do all these? Why is he under-performing?

All these and more are questions that’ll be on your mind if you realize you hired the wrong person for your organization. Handling a situation such as this requires tactics.

Follow these procedures to learn how to handle an employee who lied about his skills on his resume:

Often times, a job seeker will fill his resume with skills he does not have so as to appear more qualified and secure a job position. This deceit, however may not be discovered by the employer until after the candidate is already working for the company. The employer is duped into believing that the new employee has more skills and talents to offer. He has to carefully consider how to handle an employee who has lied in order to get the job.

Confront the Employee Challenge/Talk to the employee

The first step in dealing with a new hire who lied about his skills on a resume is to confront the person. Schedule a meeting with the person in private and disclose your findings, and also give him a chance to explain. Be sure to find out from the rest of the information if he is lying about anything else on the resume that could affect his ability to do the job.

Consider Training the Employee

If you believe that a new employee who lied about his skills can still grow into a productive worker, offer the employee the proper training. If an employee lacks specific knowledge of a particular program or an industry procedure, he can attend off-site training classes to legitimately gain the necessary proficiencies. However, this may not be possible in roles that require prior mastery of specialized skills to successfully perform.

Cut His Compensation or Rank Accordingly Reduce his remuneration

An employer may not find out that a dishonest employee lied until long after he is hired. Claiming to possess a degree or a special certification may help a new employee receive greater compensation, extra benefits and a higher position in the organization. However, if a new employee who does not have the qualifications he claimed he did is particularly apologetic and capable of doing the job, you can decide to keep him on board while cutting his compensation or lowing his rank. You will be doing the employee a favor by allowing him to stay employed, while helping the company by only paying him what his skills and experience actually merit.

Let Him Go Fire Him

If a new employee lies about his skills on his resume, he could be lying about other things as well. Keeping a new employee on your team who you cannot trust can be an unnecessary burden. Additionally, depending on the nature of the work, an unskilled employee could be a danger to his co-workers. If you feel the right decision is simply to let him go, you should do so with a clear conscience.

Job seekers tend to lie on their resumes to gain an edge over others who will be seen as less qualified. It is advisable to give them a fair chance based on the severity of the lie. However, no matter what you decide, talk to the guilty individual as soon as you discover the discrepancy. If you decide to give a dishonest employee another chance, he may reward your faith in him.
