Station Casinos LLC and Red Rock Resorts, Inc. are facing claims that they violated the Fair Labor Standards Act by requiring employees to attend pre-shift meetings without compensating them for this time. In a proposed class action lawsuit filed in Nevada federal court, a former employee claims he worked for the defendants as a table games dealer at their Las Vegas hotel and casino. He says he was paid hourly, but that he and similarly situated employees were forced to attend meetings (during which they would receive instructions from shift managers) before clocking in for their shifts. The suit argues that this time should have been compensated and that the defendants were required to pay the plaintiff at a time-and-a-half overtime rate because the extra meeting time exceeded his 40-hour workweek.
