Q: I work for an apartment complex. Inside a tenant’s apartment she recorded me working and talking about the issues in her apartment. (Wilkins, Twp., PA)
A: If this recording was done secretly, unbeknownst to you, without your consent, no. If the cameras were not hidden then she can film you, for example, like standard security systems. If she audio recorded you, without your knowledge, that is a violation of the PA wiretap tap laws and could subject her to criminal liability. If she was recording you on her phone in plain sight to you, and you keep blabbing on, she is permitted.
