The use of lie detector tests by employers in Virginia is subject to these state rules.
Employers in Virginia may not, as a condition of employment, require a prospective employee to answer questions in a polygraph test concerning the individual's sexual activities, unless the sexual activity of the individual has resulted in a conviction for violation of a state law.
Any written record of the results of a polygraph test given by an employer to a prospective employee must be destroyed or maintained in a confidential file and may only be disclosed with the consent of the person who was tested.
