Once diligent pre-employment checks have been conducted (check for criminal record, qualifications, past employment history) it makes sense to consider requesting that the candidate take a pre- employment polygraph test. To undergo such a test is not legally enforceable and no-one can be forced to take a polygraph test. However, most people with a clear conscience are only too keen to prove their innocence of criminal activities. If someone refuses to undergo a polygraph test, a prospective employer may not prejudice the candidate for consideration, but one has to ask the question, “Why, is the person reluctant to be polygraphed? Do they have something to hide?” Contact Justicia Investigations for more information on polygraph testing.
