Do i need to inform my Current Employer?

Recommended Posts

Asalamalekum,

Recently, i have been hired at a new job, and i am getting training at the moment. Moreover, I have just gotten married couple months ago and was hunting for full time job in the few months. Hence, this job is really important for me and my family. But i have a problem, during the job application process. I did not mention the name and phone number of one past job i worked at. Because, i committed some mistakes their, which i deeply regret and feel sorry. Instead, i mentioned some other jobs i worked at. At that time i was young and immature, therefore, if i would have written that older employer name and phone number in the application process. My current employer could have call them and found out about my past mistake which i deeply regret, and i might not get this job which "i really want". I had other jobs in the past and have been loyal and hardworking towards those companies and received a lot of praise from my bosses. 

Therefore, i would like to know what is the Islamic ruling in this situation. I deeply regret my past mistake, and if i tell my current employer about one of my last job. They might call them, and find out about this mistake and i could end up getting fired.

Many Thanks!

Did you lie, or did you not give all requested information? 

Lying on a job application is grounds for dismissal, but I don't think you're obligated to tell them everything.

no i did not lie, i told them everything correctly about my education, back ground check, work experience. But i did not mention one of the job i held 3 years ago. Instead i mentioned my last two jobs and one other job.

I think you'll probably be fine and I don't think you did anything unethical. If it ever comes up, just explain that you listed the other jobs because you felt they were more reflective of your relevant experience.
