Palms Casino to get glass roof for pool parties

Thu, Sep 19, 7:46am by Staff Writer

The Palms Casino Resort just closed down its outdoor pool area for a massive renovation.

EDM Tunes reports that the renovation is to construct a huge glass dome that will cover ones of its pools, allowing pool parties to take place year-round.

According to reports, the dome will only cover one of the pools, leaving the rest open to the outdoors.

The new structure will be named the ‘KAOS Dome’.

When completed, visitors will be shielded from the elements all year around.

The dome will be temperature controlled, ensuring guests are comfortable, no matter the weather outdoors.

Whether it’s snow, dust, or extremely hot temperatures, the KAOS Dayclub and Nightclub venue will go on without delays.

Since the dome is made out of glass, sunbathers will also be able to take advantage of the sun and work on their tan.

The clear structure is reportedly going to be 70-feet high and enclose 33,000 square feet of outdoor space.

This includes not only the pool but also the surrounding cabanas.

This spectacular piece of engineering will be the largest of its kind in Las Vegas and attract visitors from the Strip.

Due to its size and the project’s complexity, the pool will shut on Sunday, September 15 and reopen on Thursday, October 31.

The grand-reopening is scheduled to have a ‘Demon Dome’ Halloween Party, headlined by Cardi B.

Hawaii casino paying back wages to employees

A $3.6 million consent judgment against the developer of a resort casino in Saipan was secured by the US Department of Labor for minimum wage, overtime and record keeping violations by contractors working on the construction project, Khon 2 reported in June.

The judgment orders Hong Kong-based Imperial Pacific International Holdings and its Saipan subsidiary Imperial Pacific International to pay $3.1 million back in back wages and liquidated damages to around 1,100 employees.

The developer of the Imperial Pacific Resort Hotel and Casino must also pay $200,000 in civil money penalties.

The settlement follows an investigation by the Department’s Wage and Hour Division that found wage violations occurred when foreign-based construction subcontractors failed to pay their workforce the required overtime premium rates for horus worked beyond 40 in a work week.

Investigators also found some of the subcontractors’ day rates placed employees’ earnings below federal minimum wage.

“This judgment demonstrates the US Department of Labor’s strong commitment to ensuring employees receive wages they have earned,” said Wage and Hour Division District Director Terence Trotter in Honolulu.

“We will continue to enforce the law and level the playing field, while simultaneously encouraging employers and employees to call us for assistance and use the wide variety of tools we provide.”

“Violations like those found in this investigation can be avoided,” Trotter said.

The Department’s Office of the Solicitor litigated this case.

To date, the Department has found approximately $17.3 million for more than 2,500 employees working on the Saipan hotel and casino project.
