I had a meeting with my boss, and I digitally recorded the meeting without his permission. During the meeting he made comments that are in direct contravention of the Disability Discrimination Act. I am disabled and found his comments quite offensive.
I have raised this as a grievance issue with his line manager, I have told him that I made a recording (in case he tries to deny the comments), and gave a transcript of part of the meeting to his boss. He has been suspended pending investigation. I have been told by my union rep that he will not be dismissed.
Now the company is making a big issue about me recording the meeting without permission. There is no company policy on recording calls (bet there soon will be though!).
Have I breached any law? Can the company make an issue out of the recording without there being a company ploicy on it?
