Age, Gender Bias

Las Vegas, NV: (Apr-29-08) A federal lawsuit was brought against River Palms Resort & Casino, a Laughlin based casino, alleging that the business discriminated against its employees on the basis of their age and gender. The suit, brought by federal officials at the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, stated that the casino's former management tried to harass senior cocktail servers into quitting and planned to replace them with younger employees.

As part of a settlement reached, the owners of River Palms Resort & Casino agreed to pay $200,000 to resolve allegations. EEOC officials claimed that the alleged harassment occurred before current owner, KY, based Columbia Sussex, bought the property in 2003. Officials stated that the money will be divided by six female waitresses and one male former supervisor in the resort town 100 miles south of Las Vegas. Additionally, the casino agreed to keep records of all discrimination complaints and provide annual reports to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
