The question really boils down to whether the tape or the transcript of the tape would be admissible to a subsequent tribunal. Where a recording has been made without the knowledge of the subject of the recording being aware it would normally be inadmissible however, the admission or exclusion would be subject to legal argument concerning the relevance of the evidence outweighing its prejudicial affect. If the tribunal found that there was no or little prejudice to the claimant whilst the evidence itself was both relevant and cogent, it is likely that the evidence would be admitted. This is the position in the UK.

When does an employee have to repay workers' compensation payments?

The workers' compensation insurer pays the employee benefits for a work-related injury. In many states, it is the sole remedy of the employee in the sense that the employee is prohibited from suing the employer for negligence that caused or contributed to the occurrence. It may also pay for injuries and lost wages resulting from a work-related incident when another person or entity caused it. The employee sometimes sues a third-party for injuries and/or lost wages stemming from the incident. If so, the workers' compensation insurer ordinarily asserts a lien on the recovery to the extent of its payment. That said, courts of different states have outlined the circumstances under which the insurer can recover from the proceeds of the suit, and how much.

Can an employee be legally liable if they do not report a safety violation that eventually led to another employee's injury?

Failing to report a safety violation is usually considered to be employee misconduct. Under Workers Compensation laws in the United States, simple employee misconduct is addressed by Worker's Comp and the misbehaving employee cannot be sued by another employee of the same employer. However, if the employee intentionally failed to report the violation, knowing that the other employee was likely to be injured as a result, that could be egregious enough that Workers' Comp would cease to shield the misbehaving employee. Whether or not that is the case in a specific incident depends on the laws of the state where all this happened and the specific circumstances of the violation and the injury. Ask an attorney familiar with the laws of that state. Never rely on answers in this forum for such critical information.
