PARAMUS, N.J. — Forty-eight employees of the Garden State Plaza had their cars towed by Westfield Corp. last week from a lot that some had been parking in for years, ABC7 reported.

The mall manager said the lot was for customers only, but there were no signs to prove that, ABC7 said.

"New Jersey's Predatory Towing Act makes it against the law to tow off private property unless signs are posted," the article says.

"Westfield had NO signs warning employees they could be towed, and the new signs it put up... are too small —3 feet by 3 feet is the law. These are only 12' by 18.'"

Westfield Corp. was cited for four violations of the Consumer Fraud Act, prompting Bergen County Consumer Affairs to step in, ABC7 says.

"Bergen County Executive James Tedesco brokered restitution," the article says. "Westfield will pay back all 48 mall employees who got towed and will install new signs by Christmas that are compliant with New Jersey consumer law."
