Pre-Employment Polygraphs For Police Agencies and Armored Transport
For Polygraph Lie Detector Tests in Southern California
We specialize in Pre-Employment Polygraphs. We have given hundreds of pre-employments polygraph tests for the Los Angeles County Sheriff, LAPD, and armored transports.
Giving pre-employment polygraphs are governed by the Employee Polygraph Protection Act of 1988 (EPPA)
Who is affected by EPPA?
This legislation only affects commercial businesses. Local, State and Federal governmental agencies (such as police departments) are not affected by the law, nor are public agencies, such as a school system or correctional institution. In addition, there are exemptions in EPPA for some commercial businesses. These are:
How does EPPA affect businesses which are not exempt?
In general, businesses cannot request, suggest or require any job applicant to take a pre-employment polygraph examination. Secondly, businesses can request a current employee to take a polygraph examination or suggest to such a person that a polygraph examination be taken, only when specific conditions have been satisfied. However, the employer cannot require current employees to take and examination, and if an employee refuses a request or suggestion, the employer cannot discipline or discharge the employee based on the refusal to submit to the examination.
