Penn National Gaming and other Missouri gaming companies agreed to pay $5.5 million to resolve claims that they violated labor laws through tip pooling and wage deductions.
Plaintiffs in the Missouri wage-and-hour class action lawsuit accused Penn Gaming, Argosy Casino and Hollywood Casino of violating various laws by creating a mandatory tip pool policy that later used the tips to pay time off for non-tipped workers. The companies allegedly committed further labor law violations by taking deductions from employee wages to pay for Missouri gaming licenses and tobacco surcharges.
Penn National Gaming is an entertainment, sports and casino gaming company that manages locations around the country.
The defendants haven’t admitted any wrongdoing but agreed to a $5.5 million class action settlement to resolve the labor law allegations.
