Courts vow to fight employee dishonesty
Beijing courts vowed on Dec 3 to fight dishonest behavior in employment disputes, aiming to uphold justice and help improve the relationship between employers and employees. “As witnessed by a rise in labor cases in recent years, we’ve found more disputes were caused by dishonest conduct in job seeking or employment,” said Shan Guojun, chief judge of the No 1 Civil Division at the Beijing High People’s Court. He added that such irregularities must be prevented by rule of law. For example, some people were taken to court after they cheated employers by falsifying resumes and educational certificates to obtain jobs or promotions, while some were accused by employers of breaching contracts, such as leaking business secrets, Shan said.
