Hello and welcome,

Conversations regarding work would typically be legal to record as long as at least one party to the conversation consents to the recording.

Recording private conversations would not typically be legal without your consent though, assuming the other party has not consented to the recording either, so it depends on the nature and content of the conversation involved.

Here is a link that provides a good summary regarding the law with regard to recording conversations:
