    Hello sir,
    its not to lie about anything salary or any other reason as you should always be honest where you work as it reflects ur personality without saying.its nothing wrong in saying ur salary when as it would be also a positive factor how much capable you are.so finally what i suggest is don't lie unnecessary for small things.

    Basically, lieing on your current salary is not considered to be professional. Even if you do so, there is no guaratee that you will get a much higher salary. The salary will be only based on how much the company can give you and also on the profit of the company.

    If the company find that the informations you had given are wrong, it is the company which can decide on your faith, whether to continue with you or not.

    Dear Aspirant,

    True is true.It is not advisable to do so.Get your experience certificate from the present employer.It may be sufficient to get you more salry in future.Apart from that you must satisfy the interviewers with your answers.

    If you are questioned about your previous salary,you must tell the actual salary what you were getting,otherwise if you tell the false & if you are asked to show your salary slip,then your position will be false.In this case you will definately loose your chance to get selected.

    So you must not tell the lie.

    Thanks & good luck.

    Ashok

    Most of the companies always ask what was the previous salary you were earning at the time you were working for your previous company. It is the common question which everybody asks and you also expect the question from the interviewer or the interview board. So you have to be well prepared for the same.

    According to me it is not at all good to lie to anybody. It is even worst to lie to the future employer about the salary you were earning when you were working for the previous company. It is not at all a professional way to lie the same. But you can see that most of the people lie about the same to the future employer. But it is not a good practice.

    There will be some problem in future if you tell lie to the future employer about the salary you earned in the previous employer. The a lie will be caught at any time in future and a lie will always be a lie even it is after the several years. If in future if your employer came to know that you have made a lie and you got the appointment, his impression will go against you even if you have done what of good to the company.

    Most of the persons who lie things that they will be caught at any time and the employer has to way to know the truth. But the are so many ways to know the truth. Some companies do the background check it of the newly appointed employee. If they thing that the information given by you is wrong then they will never appoint you in their company. Some companies also demand the last pay skip of previous employment which the employee has works and if they see that the salary given in the profile and salary given in the pay slip is different then they will not give you the job.

    According to me there is nothing wrong in showing the correct salary of your previous employment. If the future employee things that you have the ability to do the job or if you are fit for the job then they will surely select your and the salary will not be an issue.

    There is no need to lie about it because previous salary is not a problem for future employment.
    Again even if you lie about it nothing will happen because your new employer or the new company will have a different pay scale which is set so there is nothing your previous salary will effect on that new scale.
    On the interview they might ask about your previous salary but its not important even if you were getting paid handsomely the new company have a different procedure of salary package so they will pay you according to their norms.

    It's definately not a good practice to lie about the salary at old company in New company. Generally at every interview session, this question is asked, there is not any reason to lie. Generally it seemed that if higher salary is stated then New company will give salary more than that, but it's completely untrue. At an initial point , if you state false salary figure, in the future by any means if that wrong statement has been caught, then you should deffinately be ready to face the legal action from the company.

    Hey!
    First of all I would like to mention that telling a lie to achieve something is not a good idea, be it your professional or personal life. There are certain moral values that people should imbibe and stick to throughout their lives. After all 'What goes around comes around!' If you will get a higher salary from your future employer right now by lying about your previous salary then it will not last for a long time with you. It is the law of nature that such things do not last for long.
    Secondly you should also consider the fact that people who are taking your interview and discussing your salary have numerous years of experience. If you do not tell them the truth about your salary, they have a number of ways of finding out the truth. They can make out from your face expressions whether anything said by you is the truth or not. Incase they find out that you are telling a lie then it will leave a bad impression and it can also hamper your future prospects of job.
    Sometimes even very small things can have grave repercussions. So it is always best to be proactive and think before taking any kind of action. Especially when it concerns your job, you should be vigilant and intelligent enough to pay heed to every single sentence that you say. I am sure that you will be convinced that such a lie will be highly unprofessional and against your morality.

    All the best for your future. God bless you.
