A list of legitimate scientific groups that have official statements condemning the polygraph is extensive.
It includes the American Medical Association, the American Psychological Association, the Federation of American Scientists, and the Society of Professional Scientists and Engineers.
Even most government officials who support the polygraph do not maintain that the process is valid. They merely claim that the polygraph should remain because it "encourages admissions."
This same convoluted logic could also be used to defend physical beatings if they were a part of the hiring process.
This is a petition to do away with polygraph examinations for employment purposes in Florida.
Polygraph examinations for employment purposes have turned away many potential employees and we seek to stop this process in order to provide truthful citizens with honorable jobs.
The Removal of polygraph examinations from Law Enforcement Aplication Process petition to Florida Law Enforcement Departments was written by scott butler and is in the category Employment at GoPetition.
