CASINO EMPLOYEES

The attorneys at Jones Law Firm place a particular emphasis on representing both hourly and salaried/commissioned employees working for casinos across the state of Nevada.  We have successfully represented thousands of hourly Nevada casino employees in class actions lawsuits against their casino employers and have recovered millions of dollars in unpaid wages on their behalves.

Your casino employer might not want you to know your rights, but we do!

Because labor is the single largest controllable expense in any casino’s budget, they often attempt to get more work out of hourly employees without properly compensating them for all of their time.  You can rarely count on casinos to inform you of all of your rights.  At Jones Law Firm we will ensure that you know your rights and that you are properly compensated for ALL of the hours you have worked.
