NPC QUICK REFERENCE - EPPA
On June 27, 1988, the 100th Congress of the United States passed Public Law 100-347, which is commonly cited as the Employee Polygraph Protection Act of 1988 (EPPA). The stated purpose of the law is "to prevent the denial of employment opportunites by prohibiting the use of lie detectors by employers involved in interstate commerce".
This Quick Reference Guide is designed to be a resource for examiners when conducting polygraph examinations under EPPA. It has been prepared in good faith based on published Government documents and conversations with Department of Labor officials.
