Q.Is it illegal if i record my conversations without asking participants permission-
Is it illegal if I record my conversations without asking participants permission to collect evidence towards workplace harassment?

Recently I have recorded multiple audios on my Phone in order to collect evidence against the HR and my manager, who is been forcing me to resign. When I send the evidence to ethics, I have been told that by company director of HR that it is illegal to records conversations without other persons permission.

As per my understanding since I was a participant in the conversation. it is not illegal to record the conversation.

A. ) You can record what ever you want if you are the participant. And if the company has such policy ask them to show such policy manual.

A. ) It is true before recording conversations with participants permission is required,when the conversation used as a evidence as the participants also get involved as witness of the complaint.
