My employer had me sign a blanket statement agreeing to video and audio recordings. I initially thought it was innocent because most telecommunication businesses have video surveillance & audio recordings for phone calls. However I just found out that my boss records conversations between him & I in his office off of his webcam.
Since Maryland is an all party consent state, your employer has to have your consent before he records conversations with you. The release you signed was your consent. Of course, you could tell your employer that you revoke your consent the next time your in the office for a conversation, but you could be terminated immediately for refusing to give consent.
I'm licensed to practice law only in Indiana, and we've never met, so I can't give you "legal" advice. My answer is simply "friendly" advice based on my experience as an attorney in Indiana, my knowledge of federal and common law, and common sense. Even if you are in Indiana, employment law questions are very fact specific, and based on the limited information you provided in your post, I can't give you legal advice, and my answer is intended as general information only. It doesn't create an attorney-client relationship.
