Hello and welcome. I am working on your answer and will be right back!

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 8 months ago.

You are in a one party consent state. As such, one of the parties to the conversation needs to consent.

You can of course refuse to participate in such a meeting unless acceptable terms are provided

Let me know if that is clear.

If I can clarify anything let me know. thanks.

Thank you for the response. So, since I live in MD, but work in DC and if I were participating in the conference call from MD, that would make a difference--since, MD is not a one party consent state, I believe?

I believe you answered my main question. Thanks.
