Thank you for using Just Answer. I am a licensed attorney and look forward to helping you. As state laws vary, what state is this in, please?
Thank you for your reply.With respect to recordings, Wisconsin is a "one party" consent state. Individuals may legally record a conversation to which they are a party so long as one of the parties to the communication consents to the recording. In other words, if you and your boss are having a conversation, either one of you may record it without the knowledge or consent of the other, because you're a party to the conversation.There's no law making it illegal to go through a person's cell phone, but there could be a civil claim for invasion of privacy, if you were harmed in any way. It would also depend on the circumstances -going through the phone quickly to try and find out whom it belongs to likely wouldn't be viewed as an invasion of privacy, whereas reading through messages and listening to voicemails, etc. likely would be.
