Annual and Incidental Polygraph Testing

E mployers at specific types of private organizations, as well as governmental agencies, are legally allowed to administer polygraph tests to employees as an annual “check-up” or performance review.

Likewise, they may do so legally if they are suspected of being involved in an illegal workplace incident. Theft, embezzlement, corporate espionage are such examples of suspect activity that may permit the use of a polygraph test.

Government organizations and private firms that are legally permitted– in most countries– to administer such tests are the following:

  • Federal organizations, state or province- run agencies and offices, and local government agencies
  • Security firms such as alarm companies, those that employ uniformed officers, concierge or lobby security services, construction security, and executive protection agencies, among others.
  • Government technology research and development agencies
  • Pharmaceutical manufacturers
  • Pharmaceutical distributors and dispensaries
  • Research and development laboratories

Industrial or corporate espionage doesn’t just happen in the movies- it is not uncommon for employees to steal information for commercial purposes.

National security, too, is one such incident where a polygraph test might be administered to a government or civil service employee.

The use of polygraph tests does come with restrictions.

An example of one such restriction would be that the organization must give formal written explanation of why the test is being conducted and obtain formal written consent from the employee.

It is important to check with your local statutes regarding administration of polygraphic testing before requiring an employee to submit to one.

Our team at CEBIA can help advise your legal time as to the proper authorization and legal procedures that must be in place before conducting such testing.
