Tropicana Casinos Accused of Violating Wage Laws

For Immediate Release

March 24, 2020 (KANSAS CITY, MO) – A class action lawsuit is pending against Tropicana Entertainment, Inc., a regional casino and entertainment company, for failing to pay its hourly employees properly under federal and state wage laws.  

The lawsuit seeks to recover unpaid wages for all hourly employees who worked at one of Tropicana’s casinos between March 12, 2016 and the present.  Eligible persons who want to join this action can submit a Consent to Join form to participate in the litigation.

 

The complaint alleges that Tropicana violated their employees’ rights by: (1) improperly “rounding” employees’ clock-in and clock-out times; (2) deducting gaming license fees from employees’ wages; (3) failing to inform tipped employees of the required tip credit provisions before paying a sub-federal minimum wage; and (4) miscalculating tipped employees’ overtime rates resulting in underpaying overtime wages.

 

The case is Traci L. MacMann v. Tropicana Entertainment, Inc., et al., No. 4:19-cv-00404-RWS, in the U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Missouri.
