Tropicana Evansville/Aztar Indiana Gaming Company LLC. is facing a class action lawsuit over allegations of violations of Indiana’s wage payment statute.
Alex Ricke, an attorney leading the case, says that they first started talking with Tropicana Evansville employees who tried to opt in on another case against a casino in St. Louis.
“Just through those interviews and conversations with those workers, we were able to figure out pretty quickly what was going on,” he said.
Ricke said that in Indiana, workers who make a certain amount in tips can be paid below minimum wage, so long as the lost wages are made up for by tips.
