Station Casinos said that all its affected employees will get regular pay through 16 May 2020, as previously announced, and will continue to get their health, dental, and vision benefits till 30 September 2020, with the company to bear all the costs of such benefits.
Richard J. Haskins – President of Station Casinos said: “This has been the most painful and challenging situation in our Company’s history.
