Abstract
A lie is an untrue statement made with the intent to deceive. A lie also can involve the intentional omission of important truthful information. An error is intentionally or unintentionally providing incorrect information. Therefore, a lie is always an error while an error is a lie only when incorrect information is intentionally provided. We assume that both detract from fair, accurate and effective hiring. We do not intend to encourage selection interview lies. Our intent is to identify the problem areas and to suggest methods that might help remove the potential for lies and result in fairer selections.
