In Texas, it is legal to record a conversation as long as one party to the conversation consents. This applies to both telephonic and non-telephonic recordings. Recording of a third party conversations is illegal (unless it is employer).
Texas Penal Code Ann. §16.D2(c)(4) provides: It is an affirmative defense to prosecution for interception of wire communications that one was a party to the communication or one of the parties to the communication gave prior consent to the interception.
There is an exception your employer may record conversations in the workplace as long as there is no expectation of privacy.
