Employees of Las Vegas Sands Corp., operator of The Venetian, Palazzo and Sands Expo and Convention Center on the Strip, will have pay and benefits extended at least through May 17.
In a letter dated Thursday from Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson, the company reiterated its commitment made March 17 to provide pay and benefits for 9,300 local workers resulting from the closure of resorts to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
“It remains unclear when the Strip and our properties here will be able to reopen, but we are in constant contact with the appropriate government entities as well as undertaking our own efforts to be prepared for that day,” Adelson’s letter said.
“Our hope is to continue doing that right up until the time we reopen,” he said. “At this time, I’m very pleased to inform you that we are extending all benefits and pay until at least May 17.”
The payment and benefit extension also applies to the 1,200 employees working in the resorts’ 14 third-party restaurants.
