If you are hired and it is found you willing lied on your application you would be fired you could also be reported to the law if the employer wished to. If you unwilling lied on your application and found out after I would tell your employer right away to straighten it out that way you could not get in trouble. If you were not hired lying on the application can still get you reported to the law but generally an employer doesn't bother.

AnswerCare to quote the statute that makes it a crime to lie on a job application? I agree that you will probably lose the job if your employer finds out, but it's very unlikely that there is anything to report to the law.

It depends on what the lie was and the consequences of lying. Just remember, by signing under the par that says you are telling the truth about what you put on the application, ANY lie that contradicts what you have written is cause to fire you. No matter how long you have had the job, or the job that you do.
