MAN'S BEST FRIEND?

By GORDON ATCHESON
City Council last night killed a
Human Rights Party (HRP) ordi-
nance which would have elimi-
nated the use of polygraph (lie
detector) tests on all employes or
potential employes in the city.
Currently at least one firm-
Stop 'n Go Foods-requires pros-
pective employes to submit to a
polygraph test. Several other
companies require employes to
sign statements agreeing to sub-
mission at a later date if re-
quested.
COUNCIL DOWNED the ban by
a 7-4 tally, as the Republicans
voted no.
A Daily investigation earlier
this summer revealed the prac--
tice of using polygraph tests on
prospective w o r k e r s at local
businesses.
Among those firms cited as re-
quiring employes to sign waivers
allowing the use of polygraph
testing at a later date included
Arby's Roast Beef restaurant and
the Ponderosa Steak House.
COUNCIL MEMBER Jerry De-
Grieck (BRP-First Ward) de-
clared the use of polygraph tests
to be "a definite problem in Ann
Arbor" and termed the practice
"totally inhuman.",
Such testing violates an individ-
ual's right to privacy, according
to DeGrieck because "personal
habits are no business of any
prospective employer."
THE DAILY investigation re-
vealed that many areas of per-
sonal behavior apparently irrele-
vant to employment were probed
during a typical polygraph test-
ing session for Stop 'N Go appli-
cants.
While admitting that polygraph
tests are generally unreliable and

may be abused, couincil member
Robert Henry (R-Third Ward)
voiced strong pposition to the
proposed ordinance.
He. claimed the government
should not become overly involv-
ed in people's daily lives and in
particular their "right to conduct
business as they choose."
COUNCIL MEMBERS Norris
Thomas (D-First Ward) and
Carol Jones (D-Second Ward)
gave the measure strong support.
Jones attacked Henry's stand,
commenting "if the government
should keep out of people's pri-
vate lives, why does an employer
have the right to investigate such
areas?"
Council members John McCor-
mick (R-Fifth Ward) and Lloyd
Fairbanks (R-Fifth Ward) said
they voted against the measure
because they do not feel there is
wide spread 'abuse of polygraph
testing in the city.
Supporters of the measure also
expressed concern over the lack
of guidelines on how information
collected by means of lie detec-
tors might be used in the future.
The information could be given
to future employers, private in-
vestigators, or law enforcement
agencies, they claimed.
LAST NIGHT council approved
two resolutions to improve the
city's parks. One measure an-
thorizes a grant from the Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban De-
velopment totaling over $200,000
for the purchase of park sites in
the city.
The other resolution provides
for the acquisition of Lansky's
junkyard on Summit St. After
buying the land, the city will con-
vert the location into a park serv-
ing northwest area residents.
