California considers it a misdemeanor to use a camera or any other recording device to view or capture interiors of bathrooms, dressing rooms, and any other interior location where a person has a reasonable expectation of privacy, without permission, with the intent to invade that person's privacy. Employers and property owners are not exempt from this law unless surveillance is being conducted in "areas of a private business used to count currency or other negotiable instruments."
