Failed polygraph ruined my life

I was accused of a crime that I did not commit.  When asked if I would submit to a polygraph I agreed.  I worked for an attorney at the time and new my rights.  The attorney I worked for was a strong believer in polygraphs.  When I went for the test the examiner tried to talk me out of it.  He said that he knew I was lying and didn't want me to fail.  I knew that I was telling the truth and insisted on taking the test.  I failed.  I have not idea how I could of failed it.  Since I failed the test I have lost my job and will have a hard time finding a new one.

If you were fired because of the outcome of the polygraph "test," your employer may have violated the Employee Polygraph Protection Act. You'll find the text of this legislation on-line at:

If you think your rights under the above legislation may have been violated, you might want to contact Doug Williams (author of "How to Sting the Polygraph") at .

I also suggest that you download and read The Lie Behind the Lie Detector. It will help you to understand how it was that you told the truth but were still accused of lying.

By the way, it was entirely inappropriate for the polygraph examiner to have told you that he knew you were lying before administering the "test." I suggest that you write a detailed memorandum about everything that went on during your polygraph examination. This will be helpful if you decide to take legal action.
