This bill prohibits employers from using polygraph examinations as a condition of employment, promotion, or change in employment status, unless the employer is in law enforcement or meets other exceptions. The bill also prohibits employers from refusing to hire, promote, or change the employment status of an applicant who refuses or declines a polygraph examination. The Department of Labor would be responsible for enforcing this prohibition and may issue warnings or civil penalties for violations.

The Department of Labor states that the bill is not expected to have a significant impact on revenues or expenditures at the state, county, or local level. However, there may be some additional civil penalties at the state level if employers violate the law. The Department anticipates that the impact of these penalties will be minimal due to education and awareness of the new requirements.
