unfair comparison. But yes any employee bringing disrepute to company and bad behavior in public or Facebook post can be punished. and/or fired.
In your case he is "caught dealing drugs" so he is gone in instance and also in jail.

OK so the employee goes to jail, gets a criminal record, and is fired. Yes. But does that also mean Rogers (who owns the chain and is leasing the storefront) and/or Oxford (who owns the mall which has the Rogers store in it) face penalties too?

In the case of LVMH, it seems rather than go after the individuals or whoever is leasing the storefront (likely same people) they're going after the "mall owner".

It really puts mall owners in a bad place. Only high end places like Yorkdale can afford to turn down shady retailing like counterfeit purse distributors. Smaller places and flea markets can't afford to have a vacancy which isn't making them any rent money.

If Rogers knew it and ignored the warnings by other employees or opposition lawyers then yes. They should be held accountable.

"Only high end places like Yorkdale can afford to turn down shady retailing like counterfeit purse distributors." You can not argue like that. You know its flea market so there will be some counterfeits. Its their job to make sure no such items are sold. I would add pacific mall owners also to such responsibility.
I don't think the Chinese or Indian origin played role in this. But you never know.

Then face the lawsuits. This will be interesting case. I wish there should be more such lawsuits.

I do find it interesting LVMH is going after 2 primarily South Asian flea markets but is NOT going after Pacific Mall. They don't want to upset the Chinese but Indians are fair game? Follow the money...

Same reason why I haven't been to the CNE in years. I don't want to pay $15 admission to be pitched the same Chinese garbage I can find at a flea market....

Its also a great place to find coconut hair butter and ethnic hair supplies. Really! I know a guy who makes a killing with his wife selling home made organic coconut hair butter. She'll even braid up your hair for a good price. But he said his wife don't make much off that since its kinda outta style.

So using my Rogers store example, if a Rogers employee is caught dealing drugs in the Yorkdale parking lot or food court, Oxford Properties should be punished?
If its a one off instance, then probably not. Though they may get bad press anyways. If it is consistent, like it is in flea markets in the article, then by all means they should be held accountable too.

LV should made it easier for Canadians to buy their mercy instead of going sue-happy in our country. Last I checked, they don't even have stores in Canada.

? What are you talking about? There are at least 3 stores alone in Toronto. And more in Vancouver, Montreal. And they do online shipping now.
