Polygraph vs EEO
Aug 7th, 2011 at 8:28pm
Mark & QuoteQuote Print Post  
I have been a federal agent for almost 10 years with a perfect record and I currently hold a secret clearance. Last year I failed a polygraph test when I applied for a job with another federal agency. I believe that the polygraph examiner failed me because of my ethnicity. I went ahead and filed a formal EEO against the agency. The EEO was accepted and once I get the results back, Iíll have the chance to take my case against a federal judge. What I need to do now is to find a specialized lawyer that can help me with my case. I have spoken to some lawyers and they donít seem to understand what Iím trying to fight. They are only interested in my money. Can anyone please recommend a lawyer? Thanks.

Well, are you more interested in anti-EEO or anti-polygraph? By your post, it's hard to tell if you believe in the accuracy of the polygraph. As a federal agent, were you a big believer in the polygraph when it suited your needs (e.g., a suspect failed an exam, confessed when presented with the results), or are you peeved now that it has been used against you? If an examiner scored you deceptive, and other examiners can come to the same conclusion, what does that finding have to do with discrimination? Not a whole lot IMHO.

I said I was fed. It does imply that I have ever used, been trained, or even believe in the polygraph. If I believed in its accuracy and on the ethics of the examiners, I would not be seeking advice from the members of this forum.  Iím just another frustrated victim seeking justice. Thatís why I posted the question.  Thanks.

Antonio,

You might want to speak with Mark Zaid, who has experience representing federal employees who have been treated unfairly.
