No, your employer may not do this. IL is an "all-party" (sometimes call "2 party") consent state. This means that each person who is a party to the conversation must consent to its being recorded. However, if you have been notified that conversations are being recorded, then your continuing to work there implies your consent. That having been said, if the converstion takes place in a hallway, waiting room or any other "public area", there can be no expectation of privacy, therefore consent to record is no needed.
