Cell Phone Video evidence

3 posts in this topic

A co-worker was overheard making a crude remark at work and was reported by his supervisor to HR. HR called the employee in and told him that all 6 of his co-workers agreed that he had said this. He was given a warning. In return he told his co-workers that he would get them back. When the opportunity presented itself to this employee, he videoed another co-worker breaking a policy and turned this video into HR. Are there any laws regarding videoing a person without their permission? Also, isn't there a law that states if you indeed have a policy manual that you must supply employee with a copy of this manual?

Are there any laws regarding videoing a person without their permission?

Yes. However, first, laws obviously vary from state to state, and you didn't identify the state where these events occurred. Second, unless your unidentified state has very unusual laws on the subject, what you described isn't illegal. Generally, laws of this sort only apply where the person making the video doesn't have permission to be in the place where he/she made the video or did so in a bathroom or dressing room or something of that sort.

Also, isn't there a law that states if you indeed have a policy manual that you must supply employee with a copy of this manual?

Again, it depends on the applicable state law.
