(MARICOPA, Ariz. – April 27, 2020) – The Ak-Chin Indian Community Tribal Council has once again approved funding that will extend payroll for its employees for another two weeks, through May 14, 2020.  The nearly 1,500 employees work for the Tribe’s enterprises, including those that work for the Tribal government as well as Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino and UltraStar Multi-tainment Center employees.

“As we continue to monitor the situation regarding COVID-19 in order to re-open our enterprises, the Tribal Council has advised management at Harrah’s Ak-Chin, at UltraStar and our tribal administration to remain closed through May 14,” said Robert Miguel, chairman of the Ak-Chin Indian Community.  “As such, our Tribal Council has authorized another two weeks payroll funding for all employees at our enterprises.”

“Words cannot express how grateful we are to the Tribal Council for their generosity during this time,” said Robert Livingston, general manager of Harrah’s Ak-Chin Casino. “We have been evaluating our re-opening protocols and putting in place social distancing measures that will be deployed once we are open.  To know our teams are taken care of financially for another two weeks is a tribute to the importance the Council places on all its tribal employees.”

For Harrah’s employees, the Tribe’s approved funding also covers health insurance benefits for those employees currently enrolled in Caesars’ benefit plans throughout the temporary closure.
