Gabroy Law Offices is representing former cocktail waitress, Alyssa Faulstick, in a class-action lawsuit after her job was unexpectedly eliminated when the Palms hotel made the decision to close the KAOS Dayclub and Nightclub without warning. Christian Gabroy was interviewed by multiple news agencies regarding the class-action lawsuit that he filed on behalf of his client. Red Rock Resorts, who is the parent company of the Palms, said that while the Palms was experiencing growth in the gaming and non-gaming areas, the expenses associated with KAOS were challenging and that is what prompted the closure.
Christian Gabroy told the news agencies that “under federal statute, if a mass layoff of 100 or more employees is necessary, the employer has to give them a 60-day notice.” This helps protect the community, the employees and their families. Christian said that there are over 500 employees who will be affected by this decision.
We at this time are not going to take a measly two-week severance on behalf of the class, nor are we able to take the second option,” attorney Christian Gabroy said, arguing workers may be unwillingly transferred to different locations across the valley for temporary, unstable jobs.
“So by the nightclub doing that, unfortunately for our community, it has created this chaos,” Gabroy said.
Gabroy says under the federal statute, if a mass layoff of 100 or more employees is necessary, the employer has to give them a 60-day notice.
“It’s to protect our community, our employees, to protect our families, and to protect the situation when you are trying to move on,” Gabroy said.
Gabroy said he believes over 500 employees could be impacted by the KAOS closure, so Faulstick says she filed this lawsuit to stand up for and with her fellow employees.
