Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.

This presents one of those issues which demonstrates how much the law favors employers. The simple answer is that yes, an employer can tow a vehicle on that basis. The reason? There isn't a law saying they can't. Certainly, there is not a law specifically giving them that right, but in the absence of a law restricting the employer's rights in regards ***** ***** on its property, the employer is free to act as they see fit.

I understood that from your initial post. Again, the employer can do this without some law saying they can't (and there isn't one).
