A company terminated one of its employees for fraud once they discovered that he included false credentials in his resume. The Minhang District People’s Court in Shanghai supported the employee, and held that the termination was unlawful since the falsified information did not affect the employee’s work for the company. In this case, the employee’s good work performance had been implicitly acknowledged by the company through the renewal of his contract on two occasions and the increase in his salary. Despite the fact that using deception to cause a party to sign an employment contract is a legal ground for termination, by the time the company terminated the employee in this case, the original inaccuracies in the employee’s resume were no longer deemed significant enough to allow termination on this ground. The company had earlier tried to terminate the employee after he verbally abused a colleague, but was ordered to reinstate the employee and only terminated the employee on the basis of the false resume after this initial reinstatement.
