Recorded Webinar: Managing the Risks of Misrepresentations in the Recruitment Process

 

7th March 2019

Duration:  approx. 1.5 hours

 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
When can an employer sue an employee for pre-employment misrepresentations?  If an employee intentionally gives false information, can an employer have a claim for damages? Conversely, what if an employer “oversells” the nature of a position to a potential employee? The recruitment process can be ripe with legal risk.

This session examines the key issues, including:

  • Rights of employers if the employee is found to be lying

  • Does silence amount to a misrepresentation?

  • When will a misrepresentation be fraudulent misrepresentation?

  • What should employers be doing in their pre-employment processes to minimize risks of employee misrepresentation

  • Does an employer have a potential claim to damages?

  • When can an employee be summarily dismissed for misrepresentations without risking an unfair dismissal claim?

  • Employers promising the kingdom of heaven to potential candidates - when will it get you into trouble?

  • Recent cases: Emma Valenzuela v Spectrum Community Focus Limited; Carr v Empirical Works Pty Ltd v Anor
