Fraudulent Offer Disclosure

Fraudulent Job Offers

OHLA USA has seen a recent increase in fraudulent job offers sent to candidates via e-mail. Candidates believe they receive offers of employment from OHLA USA or an affiliated company that turn out to be fraudulent. We would like to help prevent candidates that may be subject to a scam via fraudulent offers of employment. Certain third parties may advertise a job on behalf of OHLA USA or disguise an e-mail to seem like it was sent by an OHLA USA employee. These websites do not have any connection to OHLA USA.

What may Candidates Expect from OHLA USA?

Genuine job offers are always discussed with an authorized Human Resources team member prior to the offer being sent to the candidate. Candidates will always participate in a professional selection process that may include phone screens and face to face interviews prior to an offer of employment.

  • OHLA USA will never request money from job applicants.
  • OHLA USA will never request that you send cash, check or any form of payment should the candidate require a Work Visa.

What Does an Official Offer Look Like?

An official offer of employment from OHLA USA may only be sent from an employee on the Human Resources and/or Recruitment teams through our Applicant Tracking System. OHLA USA utilizes iCIMS for this purpose. In order to sign an official offer of employment a candidate would be required to log in to the applicant tracking system and sign the offer digitally. Offers are not sent as Word or pdf files. After signing the offer digitally, candidates are sent welcome packets and other information via iCIMS. All new hire paperwork is completed through OHLA USA's Applicant Tracking System.

Steps to Take If You Receive a Fraudulent Offer:

  • Do not send any personal information
  • Do not send any money
  • Do not open attachments
  • Report the email/website to the fraud department of the domain used by the fraudster.
