Lie Detector Tests: their Use and Abuse

SKU: 430
$9.98
Lie Detector Tests in the WorkplaceLie detector tests are any mechanical or electrical devices used to render a diagnostic opinion about the honesty or dishonesty of an individual. Polygraphs, deceptographs, psychological stress evaluators, and voice stress analyzers are different kinds of lie detector tests organizations would like to use when confirming an individual’s suitability for a job or investigating a criminal incident. Unfortunately, the Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) significantly limits an organization’s ability to use lie detector tests in the workplace.

This course describes the use of lie detector tests (specifically polygraph tests) in the workplace, including the laws and regulations that govern them, the criteria for administering them, and the rights of employees who may be asked to take them. The goal of the course is to enable the learner to administer polygraph tests in a manner compliant with current law.

The EPPA is designed to protect employees from unlawful and abusive exposure to lie detector tests. Severe consequences await those organizations found guilty of frustrating these objectives. The only way to adequately assist an organization in controlling, mitigating and insuring against these consequences, is to understand what the EPPA requires, permits, and prohibits.
