> However that does not mean finally confronting the lying SOB after eight months of suffering in silence. It means standing your ground on a daily basis, making it known from day one that you do not tolerate being lied to or lied about.

That's great if you *know* you're being lied to or lied about. Sometimes it happens behind your back (been there, done that) and you don't realize it until it's too late.

> It means confronting the liar with contradictory evidence _in the presence of neutral witnesses_ (that is, people the liar cannot fire). It means confronting the liar in the presence of his or her supervisor.

That's great unless his supervisor (and his supervisor's supervisor) are also partners in the same big lie (been there, done that).

Sometimes all you can do is just cut your losses and leave.
