Question
********************
Ken
       I have an interesting question for you.  Is there any legal/liability issues or difference in  saying or providing a recording that states “this line is recorded” or “this call is recorded”?   Is there a difference between the 2?

Anna Tate
Customer Service Manager
*******************
Answer
********************
     I dont see difference.  But that statement may not accomplish what you want.  In two party or all party state that statement is not the same as "this call is being recorded or monitored is that OK with you?"
**********************
Question
*********************
Ken,
      We have a voice recorder in our central station, as I’m sure most other central stations do.

      Our state is a two party consent location per your website (https://www.kirschenbaumesq.com/page/alarm-law-issues) which means that both parties need to be aware that the phone call is being recorded.

      On incoming phone calls our phone system announces the fact that the call may be recorded and on outbound phone calls our operators are instructed to inform the person they are speaking with that the call may be recorded.

      We have a handful of customers that we routinely speak with that have complained about constantly being informed that the call may be recorded.  In cases where the customer is highly agitated by being informed of being recorded is it possible to have them sign off on this fact?  If they did so would this allow us to stop informing this specific customer about the call recording and if so for how long?

      I understand that we would need confirmation/signatures from every employee that may answer the phone at the premise as well as any individuals that are setup as contacts for the customer.

      If this is possible would you be able to craft a letter/waiver that we could utilize for this purpose?  Would the letter/waiver include any protection if the customer hired someone that we subsequently contacted and did not inform about the recording if they did not provide us with a signed waiver for that individual?

      My concern is if we use the monitoring contract with the consent that only covers us

with the individuals named on the contract correct?  It wouldn't cover each individual in the business that we may speak to and record or anyone that is on a contact list (provided by the owner) that wouldn't know that the calls are being recorded.
      One customer and his employees are complaining because we speak to some of them

several times a week and make the announcement each time.  Obviously the customer is being difficult but we usually try to accommodate most customer requests within reason so I'm looking for a way to protect our interest as well as satisfy the customer's demand to stop telling his employees that the call may be recorded.
      Does your monitoring contract  accomplish the notification for

the named individual as well as all his employees and responsible parties on his
call list?
Thank you.

*******************
Answer
*******************
      Your question raises an interesting misconception about audio laws that I think is common among those in the alarm business.  You state that parties to the call need to be "aware".  So you would think that in a one party state only one party would need to know about the recording, and in an all party state, all parties would need to know.  To satisfy this requirement you, and I believe most in the industry, rely on announcements and repeated beeps.  The problem, as I see it, is that the audio statutes don't use the word "aware".  For the most part I believe the statutes use the word "consent".     I am not aware of any statute that explains that providing notice, such as beeping or announcements, constitutes consent if the other party remains on the line.  Courts may very well have interpreted this as "implied" consent, but I haven't researched this and of course unless the statute is clear and addresses the issue [which I don't think they do], you take a chance each time a judge has to consider the issue. 

      So how do you get consent and how often do you need to get it?  Can an employer give consent on behalf of all of the employer's employees?  If your subscriber gives you a call list do you need consent from everyone on the list or can the subscriber consent for them?

     All of the Standard Form Contracts provide for consent to recording, and make clear that the central station owns the recordings.  The consent covers only the subscriber.  Arguably an employer can consent on behalf of the employees so long as the recorded call relates to the employers business and the employees duties.  It's doubtful that a subscriber can name someone on the call list and consent on behalf of that person.  The most prudent approach would be to have anyone on the call list sign a consent form, as impractical as this may be.

      I suggest you refocus your concern.  The problem that may arise is not the recording, but how its used.  Up date your Handbook making sure that your employees understand that the recordings are confidential.  Every employee should sign an Employment Agreement that provides for their consent to the recording.  Then stop the announcements - the announcements are not effective anyway unless you request and obtain consent.  A statement that there is recording is not consent and at best you may obtain implied consent that way.  If you are going to make announcements then the most appropriate one is " I am recording this call, is that OK with you?"   If a person declines consent then your operator can say what needs to be said and then promptly hang up.  I don't think any alarm company is going to risk civil or criminal exposure for recording an appropriate business call without providing the requisite notice.
