A casino operator will pay $250K to four women to settle an age and sex discrimination lawsuit

RCH Colorado, which owns and operates the Reserve Casino Hotel in Central City, Colorado will pay $250,000 to four women to settle an age and sex discrimination lawsuit by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). According to the EEOC, the casino discriminated against four women who were aged from 58 to 63. Out of 14 applicants for the slot attendant position, the oldest 3 women were not hired. Furthermore, the casino also refused to hire a 63 year old cocktail server who would have been the oldest cocktail server at the casino if she was hired.

“The ADEA and Title VII are clear that discrimination on the basis of a person’s age and/or sex is a violation of federal law. Employers cannot hide behind any marketing or rebranding efforts to discriminate against older, seasoned workers.” said EEOC Regional Attorney Mary Jo O’Neil.
