Is it legal to make employees take a polygraph test?

Recently we've had money come up missing out of a deposit. Is it legal to have all employees take a polygraph test in an attempt to find out who took the money?? I know it won't stand up in court but a co-worker was questioning the legality of it.

  • Yep they can. If you work for an at-will employer the boss can also fire everyone there at a whim and not have to give you a reason.

  • I think it's perfectly legal. You have to take a polygraph to work at the police dept.
