Your Employer Can't Stop You From Recording Conversations At Work

Recommended Posts

Whole Foods has a policy against employees making recordings in the workplace without the boss' permission. Federal officials have ruled the policy illegal.

If you're looking to catch your boss breaking labor law, that smartphone in your pocket might be your best friend, thanks to a new ruling from federal officials.
On Thursday, the National Labor Relations Board ruled that upscale grocer Whole Foods cannot forbid employees from recording conversations or taking photographs at work without a supervisor's permission. (Local laws, however, could still come into play in certain situations, as several states require the consent of two parties in order for a conversation to be recorded legally.)

Don't have an employer = problem solved

That-said: I will record whatever I want, whenever I want, and anyone trying to tell me any different can take a hike.

You can check your states recording law at the link below.

State Law: Recording

Each state has its own wiretapping statute and its own rule on how many parties need to consent to the recording of a phone call or conversation in order to make it lawful. State law also varies on whether or not (and under what circumstances) you are permitted to use recording devices in public meetings and court hearings. Choose your state from the list below for state-specific information on recording laws
