Consider this scenario and then answer the following
questions.
Sloan was offered a full-time position at a well-known
investment bank. After she verbally accepted the offer the
recruiter asked her to complete some standard paperwork. One of the
questions she answered was “Have you graduated from college or
university?” Sloan checked the “Yes” box.
The problem is that Sloan had completed all of her coursework
for graduation, but she had not yet completed her university’s
internship requirement. She had heard from friends that the
university sometimes allowed students to apply their first three
months of full-time employment toward the internship
requirement.
After accepting the offer, Sloan moved across the country to
begin working at the investment bank. She signed a year-long
apartment lease and was eager to begin her career. Two weeks into
her job, she was asked to meet with her supervisor and a
representative from human resources. Sloan was terminated for
providing inaccurate information on her application materials and
escorted from the building. When the human resources department at
the investment bank contacted Sloan’s university to confirm her
graduation date, they had learned she had not yet graduated.
Was the investment bank’s decision to terminate Sloan
illegal?
Yes
No
What should Sloan have done?
a. Sloan shouldn’t have answered the question on the form.
b. Sloan should have checked “No” on the box and hoped no one
would carry out a background check.
c. Sloan should have checked “Yes” on the box and explained the
situation to the recruiter.
d. Sloan should have checked “No” on the box and explained the
situation to the recruiter.
