This week’s guruIs vetter a prisoner of his own conscience?Guru’s past has returned to haunt him many times but few concern serioustransgressions of the law (stealing traffic cones doesn’t count). The managing director of CVvalidation.com, which carries out checks on jobapplicants, is probably wishing that he hadn’t promoted the company’s servicesso vociferously (News, 7 August). A Mori poll commissioned by the company showed that one in five peoplequestioned admitted exaggerating details on their CVs and one in three had liedabout qualifications or work experience. Mark Castley, who set up the online staff vetting company, was convicted oftrading while insolvent in the 1990s. Bet that little gem isn’t on his curriculum vitae. It pays to check car for talcum HR directors should be worrying about more than just the recession. They should be particularly vigilant for vengeful colleagues. Horror storiescompiled by online careers service Fish4jobs include one PA filling the airvents of her boss’s car with talcum powder and watching him and his VIP clientsjump out spluttering when the engine started. Another injected milk into her boss’s chair and spread mince under his desk,and one placed an ad with the manager’s home phone number in a lonely heartscolumn. More civil rights than slave trade Guru opened up a can of worms (hopefully this phrase hasn’t offended anyone)when he asked his disciples for the meaning of the phrase”nitty-gritty”. Many HR professionals have been told that it relates to the abuse sufferedby Africans on slave ships. Some believe it relates to the rape of women,others to the conditions on the lice-infested lower deck. But the website www.worldwidewords.org claims that the only written recordsof the phrase date from 1956, throwing into question its slave trade origins. The Bloomsbury Dictionary for Contemporary Slang claims the phraseoriginated as black slang in the 1960s and referred to grooming one’s scalp. HR networking forum UKHRD recently found that, far from being racist, theword became common among the black civil rights movement of that period when itwas used to describe hard bargaining. Got any more you’re worried about? Fine example of NHS staff shortagesSkills shortages are so severe that they are even being used as a legaldefence. A hospital consultant was recently found guilty of slapping one LondonUnderground employee and head-butting another. What could have provoked suchanger? A delay on the Northern Line.The judge, however, decided it was inappropriate to send him to prisonbecause the NHS is short of staff. He faces only a £1,000 fine – which ishardly onerous for a senior doctor – and the prospect of London Undergroundbanning him from the tube.Guru wonders what the sentence would have been had the guilty party beenfrom a different sector with skill shortages, such as construction or haulage?
