In light of the
arrest of a South Carolina government employee
for tape recording a conversation between co-workers, I thought I'd discuss a question I'm asked all the time in my law practice:
Can I record a conversation with my employer? Unfortunately, there's no easy answer to this question, and a mistake can land you in jail. Illegal tape recording can have both criminal and civil penalties. The employee in South Carolina faces up to five years in prison and a $5,000 fine.
