Some companies, especially some governmental agencies, require that a candidate take a polygraph or lie detector test.
I just learned that lie detectors do not detect lies. They can only detect whether deceptive behavior is being displayed (Kevin Bonsor - CFE News Tampa Chapter).
For some positions of trust companies requiere an extensive background check that sometimes goes 20 years back. All of it is part of preventing fraud and white-collar crimes.
What if as a condition for being hired you had to undergo these tests?
