Casino employees who are going to be out of work could get some help in the near future. Atlantic County Executive Dennis Levinson is pledging the assistance of county government for residents who are facing the threat of unemployment due to the projected closings of Revel, Showboat and Trump Plaza casinos. The Atlantic Cape May Workforce Investment Board (WIB) has been asked to work with Showboat Atlantic City and the state’s Rapid Response team to inform Showboat employees about programs available to them as dislocated workers, including unemployment compensation benefits and their rights with respect to wages, severance and benefits related to termination. The WIB is expected to be in contact with Revel and Trump Plaza in the near future as well.
