If your employer misrepresents material aspects of your job to either keep you from leaving or a prospective employer lies to persuade you to leave your current job, it may be fraud if you suffer economic injury as a result of the lie. You may have rights as a result of the said misrepresentation and might be entitled to damages.
Fraud or misrepresentation can be forms of misleading statements, representations or non-disclosure of material facts. For example, if a prospective employer encourages you to leave your current, well-paying and secure job and join them by making false statements concerning the possibilities of your new position, pay or job security, and then fails to keep an explicit promise or to tell you internal aspects which would influence your decision, your rights may have been violated.
