Pre-Employment Polygraph Examinee Instruction Written Audio Tape (WAT)


This 35-minute audio tape recording is designed for use in the administration of Pre-Employment Polygraph Examinations under the requirements of the Employee Polygraph Protection Act of 1988 (EPPA). The EPPA requires that the polygraph examination be at least 90 minutes in duration; from the moment that the examinee is greeted by the polygraphist until he/she exits the polygraph examination room. Hence the recommended procedure using this audio tape recording is to first have the examinee read and sign the Notices required by the EPPA, and complete the limited personal history form required by the employer, which usually takes approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. The examinee is then instructed to listen to the aforementioned Pre-Employment Audio Tape using a set of headphones. This audio tape contains the Notice to Examinee required to be read to the examinee by the Federal Labor Department. The audio tape also contains a full explanation of the physiology recorded by the various components of the polygraph instrument, and provides answers to the usual questions posed by most examinees. The audio tape further motivates the examinee to be truthful during the examination process. Once the examinee has listened to the audio tape, he/she is then invited into the polygraph examination room where questions regarding the contents of the audio tape are answered, if any. All of the test questions are then reviewed with the examinee and admissions are recorded. The examinee is then administered the remainder of the polygraph examination wherein the examinee’s physiological data is recorded and collected for analysis and determination of truth or deception. The value of the tape is multifold in that it assures that all of the important and necessary information be provided to the examinee without mistake and deviation with a record of its contents and standardization. It further saves the polygraphist at least 35 minutes in which he/she can attend to related matters, in addition to the 15 to 20 minutes spent by the examinee in the execution of the EPPA notices and Personal History Form.

Because the aforesaid Audio Tape begins with a personalized welcoming introduction, listing all of the credentials of the polygraphist(s) conducting the polygraph examination(s), the Audio Tape is offered in a written form (Written Audio Tape - WAT) consisting of eight (8) pages of single-spaced text. The polygraphist inserts his personalized welcoming introduction, using the Written Audio Tape (WAT) as a model. Then the polygraphist or someone of his/her choice would then read the entire text into a tape recorder to make a master copy, which can then be used in the administration of Pre-Employment Polygraph Examinations. The cost of this WAT is $49.95 which can be transmitted by regular mail or facsimile.
