Arbitration Panel Rules In Arizona Casino Hiring Dispute

2 August 2000

PHOENIX, Arizona – August 2, 2000 – As reported by The Associated Press: " An arbitration panel disagreed with the Colorado River Indian Tribes' contention that some casino employees fell into a non-gaming category and thus weren't subject to state requirements.

"…[Director of the Arizona Department of Gaming ,Steve] Hart, said the dispute arose when the tribes created a category of "non-gaming employees" the tribes said weren't directly involving in gaming.

"The department objected, and the arbitration panel said Friday the tribal-state gaming compact covered employees who have access to all areas of a gaming facility that are not open to the public, as these did.

"Such casino employees are subject to the state's certification process, a point that was in dispute, Hart said.

"…There was no immediate comment by the tribes. "
