I know someone who failed out of training, applied again and failed the sim, and now has SW calling him once a month to see if he wants to back. I don't buy the fact that she is making up the story just because she didn't get the job.
No, he doesn't know. According to him Skywest is the West Point of the regionals, with very high standards for its applicants even to include the infamous sim eval in the almighty Frasca. Trust me, we heard all about it over in the Mesa thread.

Your position can be whatever you want it to be, but that's not THE LAW. The fact is, this IS a crime, no matter what you think it should or shouldn't be.

True. In the state I live in, only one party has to consent for the recording to be legal. The other party has no knowledge they are being recorded.

And hope they don't call the cops. If you do this to a sexual harasser/predator, why do you think he wouldn't call the cops. If nothing else it would muddy the waters if the accuser acted illegally.

Your position is totally irrelevant. State law is relevant.

The laws I've seen don't allow exceptions for good intentions. The only exception is you're a cop and you got a warrant first.

I'm just trying to keep people out of trouble. If you use an illegal recording against someone, it's highly likely they will complain to the appropriate jurisdiction.

I'd like to see reworded for a lot of things...like using the calculator on my freakin' phone.

Probably wouldn't hold up in court.

Ultimately if you do this are going to jail? Probably not. Will you even get convicted under these circumstances? Maybe not. But you could put yourself through the wringer...you're handing the accused harasser a weapon against YOU.

Some states only require one party. Others require all parties. better know which you're in when you make the recording.

Now, all that said...if it happens when the CVR is running you could walk off the flight, call the company immediately, file the complaint and ask for the CVR to be pulled.

The CVR is always a legal recording, and the company can do anything they want with it.

Which, IIRC, is a VERY expensive ordeal to do. Pulling the CVR for a review of conversation I mean.

At a former employer, when training was conducted in the plane, a guy had a bad experience and wanted the CVR pulled over what the examiner said. The cost of doing such pressed into the 5 figures I believe.

And I KNOW, that can be a A LOT cheaper than a lawsuit. But make no mistake, a corporation is going to give it a full court press to stop it in tracks/nip it in bid if they can to save money.

Still waiting for my fair share of sexual harassment , seems as if some girls have all the luck.

If you can't handle this at the lowest level and feel the need to get the company and courts involved you have much bigger issues to deal with, there isn't ever going to be a resolution. Grow up, put on your big girl dress and stop thinking you have to be offended all the time.
Anyone doing this on a regular basis is going to get what they deserve on a legal or extra-legal basis. As are those making up stories for profit. Especially those making up stories for profit.

Remember kiddies, whether you know it or not, the first person to use the word racist or sexist in a conversation is guilty of the very crime they pretend to have discovered.

In the case of sexual harassment, they will most likely lose the lawsuit if the refuse to pull the CVR.
