Paylocity has come to know that individuals claiming to represent the company have approached people proposing interviews aimed at fraudulently offering fictitious job opportunities. The aforementioned individuals are absolutely not authorized to act on our behalf, therefore the said offers are completely fake and not valid.
Such actions are presumably intended to defraud or obtain personal information from the victims.
The activities of these individuals involve criminal and civil liabilities. While we are taking this matter seriously and conducting further research into this, it is often difficult to locate and prosecute these individuals.
Therefore, if you receive a request, either in writing or verbally, for an interview or a job offer that you believe is or might be fraudulent or suspicious, please disregard them.
Warning signs of recruitment fraud
The following are some examples of signs of recruitment fraud:
- The email is not sent from an official Paylocity e-mail address but from a free e-mail service such as: Hotmail, Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo,...
- You are asked for private or confidential information.
- You are offered money or a check to process before or after being interviewed.
- You are requested to pay a fee.
- You are requested to complete bogus recruitment documentation, such as an application or employment visa forms, (the Paylocity name and logo could be counterfeit and featured on the documentation without authority).
- Insistence on urgency.
We sincerely regret any inconvenience caused by these individuals which are beyond our control and under no circumstances can we be considered liable for any loss or inconvenience resulting from these unauthorized persons and activities.
We remain at your disposal for any clarifications you may need.
