TDHC to pay more than $1.7M in settlement case to employees
A settlement of more than $1.3 million in unpaid wages to Tinian Dynasty Hotel and Casino’s employees—plus 25 percent of the liquidated damages—was reached after the CNMI Department of Labor on Tinian heard two case hearings this month.
This comes after almost five months of Hong Kong Entertainment (Overseas) Investment, Ltd.’s non-payment of wages to its 531 employees, both current and former.
HKE is the owner of Tinian Dynasty.
According to the stipulated order and consent judgment released by the Administrative Hearing Office, Tinian Dynasty admitted to its violation of obligation to pay wages.
“Respondent HKE admits that it failed to pay wages earned by more than 500 of its current and former employees, from August 2015 through January 2016 (except for the period from Dec. 12-31, 2015),” the order said.
