More Las Vegas hotels getting hit with wage and hour lawsuits

Comments (0)

Another hotel on the strip was served with a wage and overtime lawsuit recently. This time it’s the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The lawsuit was filed by a former employee who claims the casino did not pay hourly employees for all hours worked and also allegedly did not pay proper overtime rates required under the Fair Labor Standards Act.

Cosmopolitan’s time-keeping system shaved off worker’s hours
Among the allegations, workers claim that the Cosmopolitan’s time-keeping system rounded work hours based on 15-minutes intervals, so employees that clocked out four times could lose an hour per day deducted from their pay.

Workers also claim the hotel shorted them on overtime pay in several ways, including:

  • Workers were paid part of room service gratuities, but the hotel allegedly did not include the bonuses or commission payments in employee’s overtime rates;
  • Workers were not paid for time spent changing into and out of hotel uniforms, also known as donning and doffing.

The Wynn Las Vegas also under fire for alleged wage and hour violations
A few months ago we posted about the Wynn Las Vegas, which was sued by former employees over allegations of illegal tip-pooling.

You can read that story here: Tip-pooling lawsuit against the Wynn casino to be heard in Nevada Supreme Court

Hotel workers often shorted on hours, pay
If you are an hourly, non-exempt hotel worker you should be paid at least minimum wage and your correct overtime rate (one and one-half times your regular rate) if you work more than 40 hours a week.

If you are a hotel worker and you believe you are not being paid for all hours you work you can get informed on the wage and overtime laws by reading our article: Top Questions for Hotel Employees to Ensure Overtime.

You can also contact our employment lawyers at 1-888-449-2068 today to start a free case review. Our firm works on a contingency fee basis, which means if we do not make a recovery in your case we do not get paid.

Kennedy Hodges does not represent the case above, but we have recovered back pay for employees in all industries nationwide including the retail industry.
