Specific Polygraph Tests

 

The test is conducted in reference to specific facts provided to the Examiner concerning a specific incident that occurred. It is crucial that a pre-test interview is held with the client to determine exactly;

   
- what the main objective of the polygraph should be and
- what should be established upon completion of the test.
 
 

Pre-employment Polygraph Tests

 

The polygraph is utilised to determine the candidate's honesty with regard to his employment application and possible deviant behaviour at previous places of employment. This type of test is highly recommended for new applicants in key positions of business.

 

Typical questions in a pre-employment assessment will be as follows:

 
- From the age of 18 upwards, were you ever fired from any place of employment?
- From the age of 18 upwards, did you ever steal anything worth more than R100.00 from any place where you worked before?
- From the age of 18 upwards, were you ever part of a criminal gang or criminal syndicate?
- From the age of 18 upwards, did you ever commit a serious crime and got away with it?
- Did you supply this company with any false or incorrect information during your application process?
   
   
   
 

 

Periodic Polygraph Tests

 

The polygraph is used to determine the general honesty of existing employees periodically in an effort to distinguish between deceptive and honest employees. In most cases 70% of candidates are found to be non-deceptive and 30% deceptive. This type of lie detector test is used in different businesses and has proven to be very effective in shrinkage control.

 

Typical questions in a periodic assessment will be as follows:

 

-

During the past 3 months, did you help or assist anyone to steal anything from this business?
- During the past 3 months, did you steal anything worth more than R100.00 from this business?
- During the past 3 months, did you see anyone steal anything from this business and did not report it?
- During the past 3 months, did you receive any money or rewards for anything that was stolen from this business?

 

 

Criminal Background Checks

 

Polygraph Institution can provide clients with criminal record checks either by identity number and/or fingerprints.

 

For fingerprint testing the Polygraph Institution is linked with IDECO who is the service provider on behalf of SAPS. The IDECO AFI-Switch system interfaces with the South African Police Service Automated Fingerprint System (SAPS AFIS). Please note all candidates should be informed that such checks will be conducted and the completion of a Consent Form is required. A minimum of 20 individual criminal background checks is required per booking.

 

 

Credit Background Checks

 

The Polygraph Institution can perform a credit background check on candidates.

 

This background check supplies a large amount of information about the candidate, such as current credit status, previous employers, previous and current addresses, previous and current phone numbers. Please note all candidates should be informed that such checks will be conducted and the completion of a Consent Form is required.

Verification of Personal Details

 
The Polygraph Institution use national databases that are linked with Internal Affairs to verify different details as requested by the client on a specific subject such as verification of ID numbers, qualifications, previous employment, etc. This information is used to determine and verify the profile of the candidate. Please note all candidates should be informed that such checks will be conducted and the completion of a Consent Form is required.
 

 

CCMA and Expert Witness Statements

 

All examiners at the Polygraph Institution are well trained as expert witnesses in labour related cases and also trained to testify in CCMA cases where applicable. Please see case files where the polygraph evidence was successfully represented in CCMA as well as Labour Court matters.

 

 

Infidelity Tests

 

The Polygraph Institution is able to conduct infidelity testing on spouses. This step is not recommended if there is still any hope of rectifying the relationship. The lie detector test should only be considered as a last resource, especially in the case of a married couple. It is strongly advised to rather seek counselling from a professional marriage councillor.
