Louisiana Polygraph Testing

We perform a discreet, professional polygraph test in the privacy of our local office and provide you with the details. All information revealed during the test is kept strictly confidential.

The lie detector test can be administered for a variety of different reasons including employment, theft, family issues, infidelity suspicions, and more.

Testing is performed in a very non-invasive way and takes only a short visit to our local Lafayette office in the Oil Center. Our polygraph examiner is a veteran, retired police Major who has conducted pre-employment, criminal, civil and domestic examinations for over 20 years. When the chips are down, make sure that you’re using a real pro for your polygraph testing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few of the questions we most commonly received about our polygraph testing services.

What other limitations exist on polygraph tests?2019-07-16T15:33:50-05:00

We have already discussed when and on whom polygraph tests may be administered, but there are also some restrictions in place regarding the format of the testing. Before a detector test is administered, you must read employees and ask them to sign a statement that includes the following:
A list of topics that employers are not allowed to ask, which includes questions about sexual preference, racial issues, political affiliation, lawful labor activities and religious beliefs
An explanation of how the test works and how the test results can be used
A statement that employees have the right to refuse to take the test, and that employers cannot mandate polygraphs as a condition of hiring or continued employment
An explanation of the steps the employee should take if the provided test violated the laws governing how polygraphs can be used
In addition, a person taking a polygraph test has the right to stop the test at any time, and has the right to be asked questions that are not unnecessarily intrusive or otherwise degrading and abusive. The results of the test may only be provided to the employer, the employee, a court or government agency and/or a mediator or arbitrator.

Is polygraph testing for employment legal in Louisiana?2019-07-16T15:33:12-05:00

Yes, polygraph testing for employment is legal in Louisiana, so long as it adheres to the guidelines set by federal polygraph laws.

Can an employee refuse to take a polygraph test?2020-12-17T13:03:01-06:00

In most cases, yes—the Employee Polygraph Protection Act makes it illegal for employers to ask employees to take tests, and punishes them for asking them to do so or for retaliating against them if the employee refuses. Even in the exception scenarios, an employee can still refuse to take the polygraph test.

How accurate are polygraph tests?2020-12-17T12:59:12-06:00

The accuracy of polygraph tests ranges from 78%-85% (opinions vary).  Accuracy is effected by the experience of the examiner himself.
