Rising Star Casino to lay off 400+

Saturday 28th March 2020

RISING SUN, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) -- The parent of Rising Star Casino Resort in Ohio County has announced plans to lay off nearly 420 employees. The move comes about two weeks after the Indiana Gaming Commission ordered all Hoosier casinos to close as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In two notices to the state, Gaming Entertainment (Indiana) LLC says the layoffs include all casino, restaurant and hotel jobs at the site, as well as riverboat staff. Only 36 "essential team employees" will continue working until the casino can reopen.

"However, employees are being advised that should the Rising Star reopen in the near future, we anticipate we will have positions for which most of our current employees may apply," the company said.
