Hi, Thank you. It depends what the company policy is on communication - technically a company is not entitled to monitor personal communication. What was the nature of the phone call? Kind regards AJ
Hi, Thank you. Were the phone calls personal in nature?
Hi, Thank you. If the evidence was gathered illegally then technically it should not be admissible. Are they trying to submit these phone conversations as recordings?
Hi, Thank you. The law is (i) your employer is not allowed to monitor personal calls and communication (ii) You are not allowed to be recorded where you have a reasonable expectation of privacy. This is covered by various bits of legislation the Data Protection Act, the Humans Rights Act and the Telecommunications Regulations. If the information is relevant to the claim then it will have to be disclosed and the court will have to decide on its admissibility. Kind regards AJ
