ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the federal Consolidated Omnibus Budget and Reconciliation Act (COBRA) and its implications for workers in the Las Vegas, Nevada gaming industry. A new COBRA provision requires employers to pay 65% of the health insurance premiums for laid off workers in exchange for a federal payroll tax credit. The new provision raises the questions of how far back will the subsidy go and who will qualify. The possibility of continued job losses, cuts in labor hours and health care coverage affects casino employees.
