An employee at the Administration for Work and Welfare (arbete och välfärdsförvaltningen) lied on her CV. She has now been given a notice of dismissal.
The employee works at VLC, Guidance and Learning Centre (Väglednings- och lärcentrum). She got the job in December 2015.
Kristianstadsbladet revealed in August that the employee stated on her CV that she had studied behavioural science at Lund University. When Kristianstadsbladet investigated the matter with the university, there was no information to indicate that she had studied there.
Kristianstad University has stated that the employee was registered for several different courses there, including organisational theory and project management, psychology and East Asian studies. However, there were no results for the courses. She did not have any points.
At a meeting with VLC management on 18th August, the employee insisted that she had provided correct information on her CV.
After Kristianstadsbladet's exposé, the Administration for Work and Welfare carried out an investigation. It showed that there were several irregularities on the CV.
Out of nine stated courses, the municipality could only certify two.
To counteract the employer, the employee submitted a certificate of a two-day project management course from 2012.
On Monday, October 5th, the Administration for Work and Welfare gave the employee notice of dismissal. Her union has also been informed that the employer wants to dismiss the employee.
Head of the Administration, Charlotte Nygren-Bonnier says:
– We have notified that we are considering dismissing the employee. I cannot make any further comments at the moment.
The employee and her union now have one week to call for deliberation on the notice of dismissal.
