Re: Can Employers Legally Listen in on Employee Cell Phones
I think you are a bit paranoid. The government might (and then I have not had real proof) have the ability to listen in on a cellphone conversation and even turn it on, I seriously doubt your employer has. Most phones transmit nearly constantly as they update their location as well as many applications within the phone updating. If you are in an area of a weak signal, those behind the scenes communications would use much more of the batteries reserve due to having to use more power to contact the tower antennae.
I think you need to look in the next aisle over for somebody listening more than worrying about your phone being used as a listening device.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
