The problem of someone claiming to have a degree and lying is more common than you think. Roughly 50,000 Ph.D. diplomas are purchased each year and put into the hands of people willing to lie to take away a job that others spent their whole lives training for.
The law uses the phrase “specific articulable symptoms” but does not actually define this term in the legislation written. Because of this lack of a legal definition, employers bare the burden of weighing the risks of misinterpreting this phrase and disciplining an employee or erring on leniency to not impede on the rights of an employee.
