False information on resume
Lying on your resume can ruin your career.

By putting false information on your resume, you could be getting burned in the job market, in addition to receiving a dismissal for just cause.

When it comes to trying to get the much-desired job, some professionals insert exaggerated or even false information (ie, lying on the resume) in their professional history. Such an attitude can not only disqualify the candidate but also end his career. It doesn't take long for HR departments to discover the hoax and the professional may be “burned out” in the job market.

fake certificates

Incredible as it may seem, there are professionals who even use fake certificates, such as high school graduation certificates. It is worth noting that this action is even a crime under the Brazilian penal code. The company, in these cases, may choose to dismiss the employee for Just Cause. Such court decisions, for the most part, cannot be reversed. Case registered in Hortolândia-SP.

The worst thing is not losing your job, but ending your professional career, as this information can be shared with the entire job market and make it difficult or even impossible for you to be replaced. In the city of Campinas-SP, an employee who had been with the company for more than 10 years was fired for just cause. Reason? The company discovered that her high school certificate was fake. This is “very serious” conduct, commented the judge of the Regional Labor Court of Campinas, Manoel SF Carradita.

In 2015 and 2016, in Espírito Santo, 11 public school teachers were fired for Just Cause for presenting false certificates and documents. The professors presented falsified latu sensu graduate certificates in order to gain access to public employment. All 11 were sued and had to return the bonus money received for the graduation level. In addition, all were prevented from holding any public office for 5 years.

Up to 6 years of imprisonment

According to the Brazilian Penal Code, anyone who forges certificates, such as course completion certificates, can face 2 to 6 years of imprisonment and a fine (Article 304 of the Penal Code).

To better understand what it is and how it works:

  • CRIME: It is configured by the use and/or falsification of documents. The length of imprisonment varies according to severity;
  • Where in the Brazilian Penal Code? Articles 297 to 301, Decree of Law 2848 (7/Dec/1940);
  • Where in the CLT? Article 482.
  • Penalty: 2 to 6 years and fine (public documents), 1 to 5 years and fine (private documents).

confidence shake

Judges in the labor area have given full support to companies that dismiss their employees for just cause in these cases. This is a breach of trust between employee and employer. Characterized by the Law as “improbity” it is a way to obtain an illicit advantage and this, in itself, undermines the pact of trust in the contractual relationship. Many candidates use this artifice to get the job, but with the discovery of the lie, it could result in irrecoverable damage to their professional life.

The best option

Never put information that does not match your qualifications or experience on your resume. Remember: honesty is your business card to establish a bond of trust between you and the company. Once this link is broken, it will be virtually impossible to recover for the rest of your life. Be honest and transparent. Put and say only what you really are and can offer the company. Throughout your journey you will have the opportunity to develop and create a bond of extreme trust with your job and thus ensure your success during your career.
