Are you being pressured by your employer to undergo any sort of honesty test, such as a polygraph test (lie detector test)? Did you refuse to take such a test and suffer a negative consequence, such as a suspension or termination? If so, you may be the victim of honesty testing discrimination.
Examples of lie detector tests include polygraphs, voice stress analyzers, and psychological stress evaluators, and any other mechanical or electronic test that is used to create an opinion about the honesty of an individual.
Legal Lie Detector & Polygraph Tests
There are, however, exceptions which allow your employer to legally administer lie detector and polygraph tests:
- Written honesty tests
- When the honesty test is used in connection with an ongoing investigation involving economic loss or injury to the employer’s business if:
- You have access to the property that is the subject of the investigation
- Your employer has reasonable suspicion that you were involved in the activity being investigated
- Your employer provides a written statement to you before the test which identifies the reason you are being tested and why your employer believes you were involved
- Your employer performs certain security services, or manufactures, distributes, or dispenses controlled substances
