An Alberta arbitrator has reinstated a worker who was dismissed after the employer viewed video footage of him near a time clock that had been damaged.

Goran Miljevic, 50, was a meat cutter at a Safeway grocery store in Calgary. The store used a time recording system on which employees punched in and out of work, recording their hours on a weekly time card. Employees inserted their cards into a slot on the time clock to record their in and out times.
