Khari P., Esq., Expert

Hello and thank you in advance for using Just Answer. I am sorry to hear you have an issue. Hope fully we can get this resolved quickly. I amCustomer. I am an expert attorney with over 22 years of legal experience, ready to answer your questions with top quality service. I am so sorry to hear you are having an issue and I greatly hope I can be of assistance. However, before we get started. There are a few things we must go over. Call prompts for extra fees come from JustAnswer not me and you can still chat here with me for free. I am only able to answer general legal questions. I am a licensed attorney, but may not be from your jurisdiction. Therefore, I cannot be considered your attorney. No attorney client privilege can exist between us. As a result, since my answers are not considered legal advice, it is always recommended you consult with a local attorney for specific legal information for your situation. If I don’t answer right away, please be patient.

Lastly, please understand, If I give you negative news about the law, please understand, I didn't make the law, I'm simply just telling you what the law is. I deeply apologize if the law is not in your favor. Despite what some people may think, the law isn't always "fair". Although I can’t always give good news, I can always promise that I will be honest and forthcoming with you about your issue.

you can record in the common areas. It is legal. What is not legal is recording in areas that would be considered private such as bathrooms, locker rooms etc.

Customer
Does the boss need to disclose that he can hear audio?
img

Khari P., Esq., Expert

no he does not.

Customer
I don't think there are any hidden devices in the bathroom
Customer
Would you consider this toxic work environment?

Justified to find another job?
Customer

Khari P., Esq., Expert

you can find another job regardless of whether it is toxic work environment or not. If you do not have a written term work agreement like working for a year or six months, or something, you can leave whenever you want.
