Can Employees Record Conversations in the Workplace?

shutterstock_85768900An issue that arises frequently among employees is whether they can record conversations at work. Usually, but not always, these are employees who think that there is a problem at work that could lead to their termination. It is not unlawful to record a conversation at work in New Jersey. New Jersey is what is called a one party notice state; that is, as long as one person involved in the conversation knows about it and consents to it, it is entirely lawful, and that can be the one person doing the recording. What you really have to watch out for, though, is that if your employer gets wind of that, they may terminate you for behavior detrimental to the workplace.
