- A Faculty Dean of a private college was charged and found guilty during a domestic inquiry (DI) of a number of acts of misconduct:
- making accusations that the University’s management was not to be trusted and other negative comments which tarnished the image of the organisation;
- encouraging employees to resign and join other colleges; and
- falsifying his academic qualifications and misrepresenting his past employment record.
- He filed a claim in the Industrial Court.
- During the hearing, the Court examined his job application form which among other qualifications stated that he had a DBA in Total Quality Management from Newport University, completed in 2004. However, the Dean stated to the Court that this entry was a typographic error. The Court pondered the question as to why anyone would submit a CV with such a major error. The Court was critical of the qualification stated by the Dean which was found to be a “degree” mill or bogus institution and not a recognised university.
- There was no question that the academic qualification was falsified but it had been issued by a degree mill. Holding such a qualification, according to the Court, “… was a poor reflection on his character and suitability to be an academician.”
- The Court further said that pre-employment misrepresentation is a misconduct involving dishonesty and deception. The dismissal was warranted as it affected the image of the University.
