Boyd Gaming has furloughed most of its hourly employees nationwide as have most of the casino companies. Furloughed as we have mentioned before means the employees can file for unemployment and, once the Corona virus situation is over they can come back to their jobs without reapplying.
The company did announce that they will pay the furloughed employee’s health premiums through June 30th or whenever they are able to return to work which ever comes first.
The big question right now that no one can answer right now is when the resorts and casino’s can reopen. Also when the resorts do reopen traffic will be slower and, how many jobs will be eliminated in the longer term.
