Polygraph Testing by HR Departments: Legitimate Practice or Invasion of Privacy?

It's a controversial idea: using a polygraph (lie-detector) in to recruit employees. Is it a reasonable practice or an unacceptable invasion of privacy? TEC Analyst Gabriel Gheorghiu tries to answer the question—and asks where you stand on the issue.

Maybe you've been there, many have. Your boss—who obviously knows nothing about software—calls you into his office to charge you with the task of researching and finding an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, and he's generously given you about four days to do it. Aside from the obvious option of giving your notice, what exactly do you do next?

The initial job interview is such a routine encounter. Why not do everyone a favor—and save the company some money—by having an automated system interview the candidate by telephone? Sounds far-fetched? As TEC Gabriel Gheorghiu discovered, it's already a reality in the marketplace.
