Covert recordings – Jahad Rahman summarises EAT decision

In the case of Vaughan v London Borough of Lewisham & Others 2013, the Employment Appeal Tribunal held that covert recordings are admissible as evidence. The EAT confirmed that whilst the practice of covert recordings is “very distasteful”, such recordings are not inadmissible simply because the way in which they were taken may be regarded as discreditable.
