Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today. was it indicated you could lose your job over this incident and have you had any previous warning please.
I was given an informal interview.My main point here is the fact that the manager recorded the meeting and did not inform me.
Good morning, whilst it is not illegal to record such meetings, even without your permission (for example you could have done the same without informing the employer), it could amount to a breach of the implied term of trust and confidence which exists in every employment relationship. The employer owes you such trust and whilst they are able to have someone in there to act as a note taker and make minutes of the meeting, if they were to record it then they should have informed you of this. It does not mean that the whole meeting is void and you cannot face any further disciplinary action by the employer but they should deal with this breach of trust and consider either deleting the recording or they could even take action against the manager in question, such as for example he could face disciplinary proceedings for what he did. You should bring this issue to the employer’s attention, either informally or by raising a formal grievance with them.
Hope this clarifies your position? If you could please let me know that would be great, thank you
Thank you for your answer.I appreciate your time and consider it money well spent.
