Although the EPPA law specifically mentions polygraph, the law has been applied in practice more broadly to the use of any lie detection solution. At the heart of the law is the concept of protecting a person’s right to privacy in employment. Thus, any lie detector would be prohibited. However, lie detection solutions can be used today for screening or evaluating federal, state or local government employees. This includes law enforcement and national security agencies.
EyeDetect isn’t a polygraph, so does it fall under The Employee Polygraph Protection Act of 1988? Can any U.S. employer use it on employees?
