The state Polygraph Examiners Act requires polygraph examiners to hold a state license. To obtain a license, an individual must meet certain character, education, training, and examination requirements. 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 (except with regard to certain government employees) or to fail to advise the subject of the nature of the examination. The examiner is also required to disclose the test results to the tested individual on request (59 OK Stat. Sec. 1451et seq.).
Penalties. Any person who violates the law is guilty of a misdemeanor and liable for fines ranging from $100 to $5,000, 6 months imprisonment, or both. A violator may also be liable to the Board of Polygraph Examiners for an additional $5,000 if there is a series of violations.
