Although the audio recording may not be legal (See Section 934.03, Fla. Stat.), some courts have allowed its use. I have an Order from a federal case styled Peter Molodecki, Sr. v. Robertson Display, Inc., 2008-CV-2469-T-17F (Middle District of Florida) that refused to strike an affidavit on the grounds that it was obtained in violation of Section 934.03. If you send me an email, I will share it with you. Of course, there is no guarantee that the judge who signed the Order has not changed her mind or that other judges will agree. The rationale for the Order was that the party moving to strike the affidavit had "no reasonable expectation of privacy as to the conversation that took place" at their place of employment. Please be sure to check with a lawyer regarding your specific facts.
