Can I record my boss yelling at me?

Can I record my boss yelling at me?  Well, it depends.  You can record your boss yelling at you in the context of a whistle-blower case or employment discrimination case.  You can also record your boss if you live in a one-person consent state like New York.  You are the consenter and the person you are recording is not required to provide their consent.  In other states like Connecticut, you need the other person’s consent, otherwise it is illegal.

We have litigated this issue successfully. A client recorded conversations with his office coworkers because he was trying to build an age discrimination case. The employer counter-sued and lost. Why?  The employer did not have a posted policy prohibiting recording at work.

Carey & Associates P.C. provides employment counseling to help employees and professionals with all aspects of their current employment development and beyond the attention of the employer.

We handle severance agreements every day. In fact, we probably have twenty or more severance negotiations occurring at any moment in time during the week.  We want to share some insights about negotiating severance agreements to help you better understand the deal in front of you and avoid costly mistakes.
