Alabama law requires that polygraph examiners meet certain criteria in order to administer the examination, including course work, training, moral character, and possession of a state license (AL Code Sec. 34-25-1 et seq.). It is a violation of state law, and grounds for license revocation, for a polygraph examiner to fail to inform the test subject:
• That the test is voluntary
• Of the nature of the examination
• Of the results of the test, if the test subject so requests
Any person who violates the law is guilty of a misdemeanor and liable for fines ranging from $100 to $1,000 or 6 months imprisonment, or both.
