The worker, 56, was a valet at the Fairmont Royal York, a luxury hotel in Toronto. His job duties in- volved parking guests' vehicles in a reserved park- ing lot. The spaces were in a parking area adjacent to the building that the hotel leased and to which valets gained access with a card issued by the park- ing lot's owner. The hotel paid the owner a flat fee for use of the lot and charged guests $53 for over- night parking. In March 2016, the hotel's ethics hotline received an anonymous call saying that a valet was parking his car in the guest parking area without paying. The hotel investigated but it couldn't find any proof. However, one month later, an anonymous email to several managers claimed that the person mak- ing the accusations was actually the one doing it.
