Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
Did you learn any "secrets" or anything during this call?
Why did you join in?
I'm looking for your answer to my question, I don't see how I get it?
I asked two questions that I need you to answer first.
No, I didn't learn any secrets or anything yet.
and I joined in because I'm worried that my previous employer thinks I've violated some type of law
Have you ever been informed that you shouldn't be on the call?
I cannot think of any criminal law that would be broken just by listening in.
There is some talk of conduct like this being a "trespass" but there are no criminal laws that fit that yet.
You can't record the call since you technically aren't a party to it.
ok, thanks. just thought I'd check. the employer hasn't said anything to me yet, but my friends at this employer say the boss is a little ticked off. and I didn't record anything, just listened it.
The federal laws that cover this are at http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/part-I/chapter-119
but when you read through them none seem to fit your facts.
ok, thanks. and I won't do it again
You're very welcome.
Anything else I can assist with before I exit to help others.
