Caesars Entertainment – which owns the Caesars, Harrah’s, and Tropicana casinos in Atlantic City – has been hit with an unusually large $50,000 fine by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement.

The numerous violations of the state’s Casino Control Act stem from “employing, for a number of years, approximately 49 individuals in numerous positions throughout various departments – including in the areas of purchasing, information technology, marketing, human resources, and credit – without such employees holding the requisite casino employee registrations.”

Caesars also was found to have failed to “maintain complete, accurate, and current records for each of its employees, including license and registration numbers.”
