Partner S. Preston Ricardo Advises Human Resources Executives on “Risky References”

That job applicants occasionally bend the truth a bit, e.g., on resumes, is no surprise, but today’s tight job market is apparently pushing some to extremes as creative as using “fake reference” job sites. In an article appearing in the April issue of Human Resources Executive, Golenbock Eiseman Assor Bell & Peskoe LLP litigation partner S. Preston Ricardo advises employers on what to look out for and how to respond.

The article, entitled “Risky References,” appears as a Special Focus of the April 2010 issue of Human Resources Executive, along with another article on top resume fabrications. Both pieces can also be accessed online at www.hreonline.com beginning 30 days after the issue date.
