California Employment Law
Have California Employment Law Questions? Ask a Lawyer.
Thank you for your question.
I will do my best to answer it fully but can you please clarify the question? Is your question whether you have a cognizable legal claim that you can bring in a court of law?
Thank you for getting back to me. No, I only want to know if I can record any meetings where they are reprimanding or disciplining me. I have a iphone with a voice memo. I have heard I can say"this is being recorded" and then I can record the conversation. Is this true? I think this would keep them accountable for their side of the communication. But if they say, "turn it off or you're fired, or you don't have my permission" then what can I say? In other words, do I have the right to record? Thank you , Conrad
