HELPLINE

Until recently, Casino operators have been able to take advantage of a number of exemptions included in the FLSA.  The act has largely remained unedited since 2004. However now, new laws should have a significant impact on casino workers overtime pay rights under the newly revised Fair Labor Standards Act

 

What Are Your Casino Employee Rights Under the FLSA?

If you work in as an hourly employee in a casino, you see your employer taking a lot of money from players. Don’t let your employer take money from you as well. These are examples of wage theft prohibited by federal law:

  • Not paying overtime. You are entitled to 1 ½ times your hourly pay for every hour you work over 40 hours each week.
  • Not paying for the time you worked off the clock. Your employer must pay you for the time it requires you to work before or after you punch the clock or to work through breaks or meals.
  • Misclassifying you as an hourly employee to avoid paying overtime.
  • Requiring you to participate in an illegal tip pool.
  • Not keeping complete records of your time.

You may be protected by federal hour and wage laws even if you work at a casino on tribal property. If your employer does not pay correctly, contact an experienced wage attorney who can tell you whether you have a claim.
