Can One Party Record the Conversation without Notifying the Other?

Can One Party Record the Conversation without Notifying the Other?

shutterstock_214380451 A question that comes up repeatedly is whether in New Jersey you can record conversations whether by phone or in person without letting the other person know, and the answer to that is yes. New Jersey is a one party notice state. What that means is as long as one party involved in the conversation knows about it and consents to it, the recording is legitimate. That one person can be the person doing the recording. That doesn’t mean that you’re going to get away scott-free. It may not be a violation of the law, but if you’re recording people in the workplace and the employer finds out that employer may very well terminate you for conduct detrimental to the workplace.
