Famously known to be located on the Las Vegas strip and owned by hotel chain Best Western, Casino Royale, is on track to lay off up to 98 staffs following the impact they received when the coronavirus struck the property.
Now, massively being spread is that out of the 98 employees, dealers totaled up to 49, while the rest of the affected position in gaming will be, cashiers, surveillance employees, pit managers, slot hosts, and other slot employees, but online slots are still available for the taking everywhere online.
While in times when employers ask for an employee to leave their company they are required to give 60 days of advanced notice for mass layoffs under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN), the Las Vegas didn’t provide that stating that this was thanks to the negative impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. What they did instead was to announce the day of the layoffs on the 10th of August, which was also when the operation began.
The Casino further stated that the widespread pandemic was responsible for their unforeseen business issues which in turn resulted in the layoffs.
A major blow to the employees is the unavailability of their “Bumping Rights”, which will see some – that are in those unions – avoid the company’s layoffs.
Casino Royale is not the only company affected by the pandemic, as Wynn Las Vegas have also been reported to set on laying off 252 staff as it draws the curtain on its performance of “Le Reve – The Dream”. As Restaurant chain Hakkasan will also be closing their Searsucker Las Vegas Restaurant located at Ceasers Palace, they will also be laying off 52 employees this month. And wee all know that those two closures also have to do with the impact of the Coronavirus.
In other news, Penn National Gaming’s M Resort Spa Casino Las Vegas has officially confirmed 58 layoffs, which is in addition to the 352 formerly announced layoffs.
The announcement was made public in a letter the Las Vegas operator sent to the Nevada Department of Employment, Training, and Rehabilitation which was dated for the 6th of August, as part of the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988.
Speaking about the unexpected layoffs, the operator said: “are the unfortunate result of [novel coronavirus (Covid-19)] related business circumstances that were sudden, dramatic and beyond [its] control”.
“The impact on our business was not reasonably foreseeable until now.”
The M Resort provided that these unexpected layoffs were thanks to the new rules of operating conditions, which were introduced for reopening, and the impact of the former closure in a bid to reduce the widespread of the pandemic, while https://www.kiwicasinos.io still works perfectly online.
With Nevada’s new rules being applied, casinos must limit the number of customers in their company to half of the capacity and make the gaming tables of three players per blackjack table, four players per roulette table, four players per poker table and six players per craps tables.
Speaking to media via IGB: “We simply could not foresee that the initial closures of our properties, that were issued by one or two states for a limited period, ultimately spread throughout all the states in which we operate and eventually be extended, interrupting almost all business and travel temporarily
“These significant drags on our business will likely continue for the foreseeable future.
“Finally, we could not have anticipated when our properties would be allowed to reopen and how restrictive the new operating conditions would be, and the negative impact this would have on business volumes.”
