In health insurance by Phillip Randazzo

Station Casino announced Friday May 1st that the company is laying off a “significant” number of both property and corporate employees, effective May 16th. 

This news came after Governor Steve Sisolak announced the state mandated closures of casinos will be extended to at least May 15th. 

Station Casino plans to reopen properties in “phases,” with Red Rock Resort, Green Valley Ranch Resort, Santa Fe, Boulder Station, Palace Station, Sunset Station and the company’s Wildfire division. 

As for the other four properties – Palms, Fiesta Henderson, Fiesta Rancho and Texas Station will reopen after the company is able to assess business performance “in a post COVID-19 world.” 

Full-time staff who were laid off will be paid through May 16th. The company is extending medical, dental and vision benefits through September 30th, including coverage for full premium costs after May 16th.
