A lawsuit seeking millions of dollars in damages on behalf of thousands of employees at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino in Reno, Nevada, has been granted class-action status by a U.S. District judge.

The suit claims the workers were denied compensation they were entitled to an average of one hour for every day they worked in violation of the U.S. Fair Labor Standards Act and the Nevada Constitution.

The amount could total $50 million.

A Reno lawyer charged that “GSR wilfully deprived employees of pay for time they spent engaging in work related activities without compensation pre and post shift, such as retrieving keys, radios, cash, completing paperwork, and attending mandatory training sessions and pre-shift meetings.”
