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.

Nothing mentioned on my appointment letter about audio recordings. Never signed such NDA

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.
