The use of lie detector tests by employers in Vermont is subject to these state rules.

An employer in Vermont may not as a condition of employment, promotion, or change in status of employment, or as an express or implied condition of a benefit or privilege of employment, do any of the following:

  • request or require that an employee or applicant for employment take a polygraph examination
  • administer, cause to be administered, threaten to administer, or attempt to administer a polygraph examination to an employee or applicant for employment
