Credibility Assessment Division

Polygraph Testing and Psycho-Physiology

The Credibility Assessment Division was founded on a core framework to assist businesses in the public/private sector to be able to suitably assess the authenticity of personnel within the realm of their organisation.

In many cases we have encountered companies with longstanding employees where there is suspicious handling of sensitive data, potential fraud, physical theft and often partnerships where trust is deteriorating and there is not an immediate substantial evidence to proceed with legal action.

Furthermore, in our experience where the personnel provide an important service either as employees or to our clients then it can jeopardise the relationship going forward if the concerns are then disproved and course of action was misappropriated.

Our years of experience in providing polygraph examinations to diverse private and business clients, has built our impeccable reputation. Our examiners are some of the best in their field, all of whom are American Polygraph Association (APA) and BPS accredited. The polygraph technology they use to administer lie detector tests is fully compliant with the BPS and APA regulations. Conducted with sensitivity and discretion we maintain the optimum level of data protection.

Through credibility assessment, we can help safeguard businesses by measuring the integrity of their personnel and providing reports to assist their decision making.

Business Polygraph Testing

Legalities of Business Polygraph Testing

Federally enacted legislation that restricts the use of lie detector tests by private employers except under specified conditions.

Employers may not compel or request employees or applicants to submit to such testing, nor may they use any results for the adverse action.

All levels of government are exempt from the provisions of EPPA.

There are also exemptions for companies that provide security services and those involved in the manufacture and storage of controlled substances, who may use the polygraph for pre-employment screening.

Employers may request an employee to undergo PDD testing if it is part of an investigation of a loss to the employer, the employee had access to the property lost, there is a reasonable belief that the employee was involved in the loss, and the employee is given 48 hours notice prior to the examination that outlines the loss, investigation, and the reasons the employee is under suspicion. The employer is prohibited, however, from taking any action against the employee who refuses to cooperate with a PDD examination.

Two of the major effects of EPPA have been a sharp decrease in the number of private examiners in the United States, and a move by the professional polygraph associations to upgrade standards of practice

We work closely with you to formulate appropriate questions specific to the truth you need to find. Whether in the pre-employment screening process, theft, fraud or anything else that is bothering you. Normally up to 8 questions are asked with 2-3 of them relevant to the matter you are concerned about. The other questions proposed are for profiling purposes, related to behaviour and metrics. You may want to know if your data has been passed to a competitor, or what the subject knows about theft of equipment or assets. Questions must always be related to factual matters rather than opinion. The test may take up to 2 hours depending on how complex the issue is which includes the pre-test interview.

Business Polygraph Testing can take up to 2 hours. Firstly, you’ll need to discuss your requirements with us.  We can do this on the telephone or organise an online conference.

Thereafter, the pre-test interview will commence when a number of questions will be discussed including those that you have predetermined with us. The purpose of the pre-test interview is to ensure the subject is relaxed and understands completely what the test is about. The predetermined questions and the way they are worded are suggested by the examiner since they need to be defined and close ended. The most accurate results from the polygraph come with perfectly worded and contextualised questions are asked.

If the issue has been a simple one, and the result is considered conclusive at the end of the test, our examiner will immediately apprise the client verbally if required. To be precise our client is the individual who booked the test. Unless otherwise advised in writing that we may share the results of the test with a 3rd party we will never do so. Detailed analysis of the resulting transcripts, video and charts will be undertaken by the examiner who performed the polygraph test. It will then be verified by another equally qualified and accredited examiner before the report is sent to the client, usually within 48 hours. There are a many benefits for companies to introduce Business Polygraph Testing into the recruitment or loss prevention strategy.

Lie Detector for Theft

A lie detector test is the quickest and surest way to bring the thief to light. Our polygraph tests are industry leading and our examiners highly trained, so you can be assured that the truth will be found.

Employee theft is on the increase, up around 5% year on year since 2019. Often they will work in teams to make it easier to avoid detection. Data theft is also a growing problem.

To stop your business ending up like Baring’s bank you should takes steps to stop fraud immediately. If the culprit can’t be found (they are often good at hiding their tracks) a lie detector test is the only option. This will mean examining any staff that have financial access.
