Preventing spam submission via form using a hidden field

My boss hates captcha's and well, so do I even if they work. She instead suggests using a hidden field so that if it is filled out [by robots] that the form should not be submitted. Are there downsides to this method? Any specific ways to tie into this using jQuery validate which is already implemented for the user validation?
