  • Boyd expects more layoffs at its California Hotel and Main Street Station, documents filed with the state have revealed.
  • Also anticipating imminent layoffs are Estiatorio at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Production Resource Group, and ABC Industries.
  • About 463 Boyd employees are either permanently laid off or are waiting for layoff, according to the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation’s website.

Documents filed with Nevada reveals that Boyd Gaming Corp. expects more layoffs at its California Hotel and Main Street Station.

Other companies also filed documents with the state forewarning of imminent layoffs, including a convention-associated business and a café inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas that is set to close this month due to COVID-19 restrictions.

By Tuesday, the Nevada Department of Employment, Training and Rehabilitation’s website revealed a total of 463 permanent layoffs across four companies that either had already happened or were about to happen.

Letters from Boyd dated September 13 reveal that the company gave the second round of notices through the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The act ensures that employees get a notification before significant layoffs so they can get time to find employment elsewhere.

Shortly before laying off more than 2,500 Nevada employees, the company had issued WARN Act letters back in May.

The most recent letters indicate that Boyd anticipates permanently laying off 168 employees at the California Hotel and 116 others at Main Street Station on November 13. The layoffs may affect a variety of positions, from dealers and food servers to guest room attendants and custodians. No affected worker has bumping rights.

While the California Hotel opened on June 4, Main Street Station remains shuttered, along with the company’s Eldorado Casino and Eastside Cannery Casino.

The company said in the September 13 letters that COVID-19 and regulatory restrictions were affecting its operations significantly.

Boyd shares closed down 4.1% Tuesday at $30.91 on the New York Stock Exchange.

Other Company Layoffs

A Greek restaurant inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Estiatorio Milos, said it plans to permanently close on October 25, resulting in 52 employees losing their jobs. The layoffs are supposed to start the week towards the restaurant’s closure. They include managers, hosts, bartenders, and cooks, among others, according to a letter dated September 25.

The company said it was shutting down due to “operations issues.”

Another company laying off employees is Production Resource Group LLC. A provider of lighting fixtures and other equipment for corporate events and film, the company said its 69 furloughed employees could be permanently fired in a letter dated September 18.

The company had furloughed workers on March 22. The cancellation and postponement of several large events, including a major car manufacturing event, crippled the company’s abilities to rehire many of its employees.

ABM Industries Inc. said it anticipated permanently laying off 58 Las Vegas workers on October 4, according to a letter dated September 22. The facility management provider’s contract to provide parking services at a Hertz location had been canceled, resulting in permanent job terminations and closure of the facility.
