Background is that my recent work has been a real mixture of practice and an FC in industry, hence I come across many people industry, not just my own clients.
I went to work at a place who employed a temp as I was leaving. That person was at a book-keeper level and had previously 'left' another job. That person completely 'rubbished' the company they had worked for and to say the comments were 'scathing' is putting it politely !
However, on my travels at a new place, I have found out that person was in fact dismissed for incompetence. I don't work at that previous said place anymore where I met this person and my own consultancy there has finished completely.
It aggravates me that the person said they had "left" the job - to the new place or agency that the person works through, but that is not the truth. The situation was given to me in conversation at a new place, not asked for and so I unwittingly gained this knowledge. The place where this person was at have refused to pay the agency bills as the work was so bad and its a point of litigation apparently.
Is it any of my business professionally ? Or am I just personally aggravated at the lie and its not really my ballpark to say anything.
One part of me feels that the employment agency should have checked the references, so liability lies with them. But this person should not lie on a C.V.
Fully appreciate this is not an employment forum ! but what would you do ?
You know that feeling when you know something, but wish you didn't !
