Lie Detector Tests
National Summary
The law defines a "lie detector" as any mechanical or electrical device that is used to render a diagnostic opinion about the honesty or dishonesty of an individual. The definition includes polygraphs, deceptographs, voice stress analyzers, psychological stress evaluators, and similar devices. Although most employers are prohibited by federal law from requiring employees to submit to lie detector tests, there are certain exceptions for public employees, government contractors, certain security personnel and drug company employees, as well as theft and industrial espionage investigations, if certain steps are taken.
