There was an employee in my company who had been found absconded.Now we got to know that person has joined some other company by showing fake experience on a relatively higher salary. And is distracting the current employees of my company by asking them to follow the same fraud.
I want to showcase the story on notice board stating that the employees need not to listen to such people or else the actions would be taken against them.
Please suggest the matter to be written on notice board.
