    Conversations can always be recorded with the other persons consent.
    I am not a lawyer, this is not legal advice.

    OP, what do you mean? If you are asking does your employer have to allow you to tape a conversation with management when you announce you intend to record the conversation, then the answer is you do not have such a “right.” If you are an employee at-will, your employer can certainly refuse to allow you to take a conversation with any of its staff.

    In contrast, if you are asking whether you can surreptitiously record a conversation with a manager and subsequently utilize the audio recording, the answer is more nuanced. Certain states make such unilateral recording unlawful. Others do not. Even in states which do not outlaw such recordings, the tape will not likely assist you in any internal debate with management. (Management can terminate an employee at will if it discovers he or she has recorded a conversation with a company staffer.) On the other hand, a relevant recording may help you in civil litigation down the road.
