Theoretical and/or Hypothetical question:

I have often pondered what the policy might be “hypothetically” speaking, should pre-employment polygraph testing ever be banned completely with all Federal/State/LE agencies.

Anyone who has previously failed a "Federal", State, County, or Law Enforcement pre-employment polygraph test…

a) Could re-apply, and would be equally and fairly considered for employment with the same agency previously applied with, which resulted in a failed polygraph exam?
b) Could NOT re-apply due to a previously failed pre-employment polygraph exam on file?
c) Could re-apply, but would be unfairly discriminated against due to a failed pre-employment polygraph exam on file?
d) None of the above?

Your thoughts, comments or concerns...

Triple X,

The Comprehensive Employee Polygraph Protection Act, if enacted, would require option "a," but in practice, I suspect that some agencies would implement option "c," which would result in litigation.
