Federal Free Printable Miscellaneous Law Posters Federal Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) Poster

The Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA) is a miscellaneous law poster by the Federal Department Of Labor. This poster is mandatory for some employers, including employers subject to the employee polygraph protection act.

This poster describes protections that employees have from getting lie detector tests in the workplace or as a way of pre-employment screening. Protection from lie detector tests is not absolute. For those who work under Federal, State and local governments are exempt from this ruling as well as those employees who are reasonably suspected of involvement in any workplace incident that resulted in economic loss to the employer.

UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF LABOR
WH1462 REV 07/16
PROHIBITIONSEmployers are generally prohibited from requiring or requesting 
any employee or job applicant to take a lie detector test, and from 
discharging, disciplining, or discriminating against an employee or 
prospective employee for refusing to take a test or for exercising other 
rights under the Act. 
EXEMPTIONSFederal, State and local governments are not affected by the law. Also, 
the law does not apply to tests given by the Federal Government to 
certain private individuals engaged in national security-related activities.
The Act permits polygraph (a kind of lie detector) tests to be adminis\
tered 
in the private sector, subject to restrictions, to certain prospective 
employees of security service firms (armored car, alarm, and guard), and 
of pharmaceutical manufacturers, distributors and dispensers.
The Act also permits polygraph testing, subject to restrictions, of certain 
employees of private firms who are reasonably suspected of involvement 
in a workplace incident (theft, embezzlement, etc.) that resulted in 
economic loss to the employer.
The law does not preempt any provision of any State or local law or any 
collective bargaining agreement which is more restrictive with respect to 
lie detector tests.
EXAMINEE 
RIGHTS
Where polygraph tests are permitted, they are subject to numerous strict 
standards concerning the conduct and length of the test. Examinees 
have a number of specific rights, including the right to a written notice 
before testing, the right to refuse or discontinue a test, and the right not 
to have test results disclosed to unauthorized persons.
ENFORCEMENTThe Secretary of Labor may bring court actions to restrain violations and 
assess civil penalties against violators. Employees or job applicants ma\
y 
also bring their own court actions.
EMPLOYEE RIGHTS 
EMPLOYEE POLYGRAPH PROTECTION ACT
