Good afternoon. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. If you were in an open and public area and speaking with someone, they would have a right to record, since there was no reasonable expectation of privacy and it is not a situation whereby they were tapping your phone or something along those lines. If you were speaking with someone about something that was private, this should have happened behind close doors and I am inclined to believe that if they were able to record this, that the conversation was fairly loud, thus open to the public and for anyone to hear. Even if this person did not record the conversation, they could have heard it and reported you just as easily. Now, as far as the issue with you being banned, if this is a private company, they can prevent you and demand that you do not enter their facilitates in the future, if there were issues and problems with your employment, which lead to your termination. I know this is not what you were hoping to hear or wanted to but I have an obligation to be upfront and honest with you. If you openly had this conversation and spoke loud enough for someone to hear it and record it, there is no privacy which you are afforded
