California Call Recording Laws: The Ins and Outs
Ever realized that the confidential information you’re sharing someone in a call can be recorded and be used against you? We’ve seen this kind of scheme in fiction and it can be a real horror. Fortunately, the California recording laws were established to protect you and your rights.
In California, laws were passed to make it illegal for anyone or business to record calls without the consent of the parties involved in the call. These laws apply to inbound and outbound calls.
Thus, if you called or received a call from a company while you were in the state of California and you weren’t warned that the call was recorded, they are violating your privacy rights.
In the recent AeroMexico class action lawsuit that has settled for $3.3 million, the customers whose calls were recorded alleged an invasion of privacy.
