The problem is, if you let him get away with it, you must then let EVERYONE who works for you, or applies to work for you get away with it too. Otherwise, if you use it against them as a reason for termination, you're in for trouble.

mad I still believe performance outweighs anything on resume. A person's resume could show a whole wealth of credentials, but I bet I can do just as godd a job, if not better, without those degrees. (except in punctuation blush)

Pulling people out of the ditc...
show me a person who does not embellish their resume to some degree, and I'll show you someone unemployed (although doing it on something that a college transcript check would show is pretty stupid)...

and, if the article is accurate, he never provided his resume to Yahoo, so this is a non-issue for them.

Wasn't this a key factor in the movie "Don't Tell Mom The Babysitter's Dead"?

It's not like he claimed to be Indian or anything like that to get ahead.
