Can my employer make me take a lie detector test?
No. Employers may not require you to take a polygraph, or lie detector test, in order to obtain or keep your job. They also may not fire you or discipline you for failing, refusing or declining to submit to or take such a test. Employment agencies are also prohibited from participating in such conduct. Connecticut General Statutes Section 31-51g.
Any employer which violates this law, can be subject to fines of up to $1,000.
It is permissible to require polygraphs of police officers or corrections officers at the Department of Corrections as a condition of obtaining or maintaining employment.
