Arbitrator Okays Recording of Investigation Interview

On July 18th, British Columbia Arbitrator Colin Taylor dismissed a grievance about recording an interview with an employee who was the subject of investigation. He held that recording an interview (openly) did not violate the employee’s right to representation or any other collective agreement right.

There are mixed views about the wisdom of recording interviews, with some believing that recording has a negative effect on candor that outweighs its benefit.
