Ensure the polygraph examiner or polygraph company you are trusting to administer an Employee Polygraph Protection Act examination for your company and for your employees has been administering this specific kind of examination not just any regular polygraph examination. Has been administering this for a minimum of (15 plus) years or this will cost you personally, the loss of your company and family thousands of dollars in fines, law suits and potential prison time. This is a very serious federal protected law polygraph exam. Not to be considered any regular polygraph exam.
There have been many examiners who have refused to accept this kind of examination to administer due to the complex laws, rules and sensitivity that must be strictly adhered to. Also there have been examiners in the state who say they can do this kind of examination because they just want your money, but have cost companies and owners greatly as they had little experience and did not have the proper documentation or knowledge in this complex polygraph exam. They have also harmed the employers, employees and business. Do not allow an examiner who just because they have a polygraph license or say they can do this very important exam for a cheaper price take on this extremely sensitive and delicate polygraph examination for you, your company and your employees. It may cost you greatly in the end both financially and possibly criminal actions. This should be trusted with an examiner with many years of experience handling cases like this who has experience with large corporations and small businesses and has never ever had a company, client or employee harmed. Other examiners have sent their potential clients to Executive Protection Group to handle this type of polygraph because of the complexity and the experience Executive Protection Group has over the others.
