CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A new website could let future employers get the dish about you...from your co-workers.
The website's name is getunvarnished.com, and it allows users to post reviews of peers and co-workers that tell people what you are like as a fellow employee.
The goal of the sites creator is to amass a vast database where employers can go *beyond* your resume.
and learn what your fellow workers think of you.
"Unvarnished is not set up to give people F-minuses, but a place safe to give a B+, " says site co-founder Pete Sazanjy.
Anyone can create a profile about anyone else. People who make comments remain anonymous. Comments--good or bad--remain in cyberspace as long as the site does.
Legal observers say this could become a litigation nightmare if someone writes false things about you and your professional life.
"I think it's a little dangerous--kinda prone to abuse," says attorney Danny Cevallos. "Legally this opens up a lot of potential liability under defamation law. If people however are willing to spend the money and chase whoever said what they said then this could become a litigation nightmare"
The site is still undergoing beta-testing, but has set up a wait list for people to join once it's up and running
