Fraudulent Inducement Of Employment

Fraudulent Inducement Of Employment

It is not uncommon in this difficult economy for employees to be required to move to new locations in order to find a job. In California, it is against the law for employers to make false promises to lure workers to relocate to be able to take the job.

When that happens, the lawyers at JML Law will file claims under the California Labor Code to enforce workers’ rights and to seek a penalty of double the worker’s damages for false representations.

What Is Fraudulent Inducement Of Employment?

When an employer makes a false statement to a prospective or current employee urging them to take or continue working at a job, when that employee would not have taken or kept the job otherwise, then this can be a case of fraudulent inducement of employment. In a case of fraudulent inducement of employment, it may be possible for the employee to sue the employer for damages.

Requirements Of Fraudulent Inducement Of Employment

There are many types of false statements that an employer can make to entice an employee to take or keep a job including the length of employment, terms of compensation, work conditions among others.

For an employee or prospective employee to bring a case against an employer for the fraudulent inducement of the employment, it must be proven that:

  • A fact or facts were intentionally misrepresented by the employer.
  • The misrepresentation was a key component of the decision to accept or continue the employment.
  • The misrepresentation was reasonably relied upon by the employee or prospective employee.
  • The victim of the misrepresentation suffered some tangible injury
