Is it discrimination if an employer discovers a job applicant has not been truthful in a job application and withdraws a job offer?
In most situations it would not be discriminatory if an employer withdrew the offer of a job. Job applicants should honestly answer questions asked in a job application form and during an interview. After several high-profile cases where applicants had falsified educational qualifications, more rigorous checking of qualifications is now increasingly common. An employee may also be subsequently dismissed for dishonesty during the application or interview process.
