What are the rules and laws surrounding audio recording a fellow employee at a workplace whom you have observed watching and spying on you and you confront that person in the workplace and record the conversation and that person admits they have been watching you even though this is not their job and they are the same level as you doing the same job?

I have read that you can without their consent to "protect your lawful interests" under NSW Surveillance Devices Act 2007 but also there is a Workplace Surveillance Act but I am not sure this also applies to employees rather than employers in the workplace.

Could one use the audio recording and/or transcript in any legal proceedings?
