Have you lied on a resume to get that dream job or simply to improve your finances? A new study by StandOut CV says 57% of Americans are prepared to lie in 2023 because of rising costs and inflation. Also, more than half, 55%, say they have lied at least once; meaning 43.5 million Americans got a job in 2022 by being less than truthful.

StandOut CV spoke to Mark Sadaka, Principal Attorney and Founder of Sadaka Law, based in New Jersey and New York.

Sadaka says, “An employee faking a job reference will immediately be rejected. In some cases, the company may even blacklist them.
