Albert, a top-performing district manager, was fired when his employer
Albert, a top-performing district manager, was fired when his employer learned that he had not graduated with an MBA as Albert had indicated on his application form two years ago. The employer’s application form contained a disclosure that falsification of application information was grounds for termination. Albert’s attorney says that the employer’s termination of Albert is illegal because application fraud is applicable only within the first year of employment with the employer. Albert’s attorney is correct.
