I’m wanting clarification on what happens if I fail an FBI polygraph. My first polygraph with them was inconclusive but I have an opportunity to retake it. What happens if I take the polygraph for a second time and I fail it?
I am only interested in knowing how failing a polygraph at the federal level, with FBI in this case, how that will affect my future federal background investigations with other agencies. I will no longer apply for law enforcement positions after this, so at the very least, the positions I apply for will have no clearance to perhaps a Secret clearance.
Let’s say I get a job offer with Department of Agriculture that requires no clearance. Will USDA know I took a polygraph with the FBI? Will they know my results?
Now let’s say that I get a job offer with Transportation Security Administration and the position requires only a Secret clearance. Will TSA know I took a polygraph with the FBI? Will they know my results?
Thanks in advance.
