Team Members who are getting Laid Off, Terminated, Discontinued, Resigned with/without Giving 14 Days’ Notice, and End of Contract are added to a “Dreaded Employment Blacklist” maintained by the MGM Resorts International Corporation’s Security and Background Investigations Department. This list of Employment Blacklist Database is maintained by an MGM Corporate Security Guard and a Sr Investigator named Timothy Shalhoob (Tim). Tim Shalhoob is sharing this Employment Blacklist Database with other Las Vegas C-sino Security Department Personnel to prevent former MGM Team members joining other c-sino companies. MGM Resorts International Corp., Legal Department Vice President General Counsel Mr. John McManus, and his staff of Corporate attorneys are aware, but they are encouraging to disregard Nevada Revised Statute NRS 613.210. MGM Resorts International Corporation is in Violation of “NRS 613.210 Blacklist Unlawful.”
MGM Letter: Bill Hornbuckle, President and COO
This is a challenging time and it has been an especially difficult week. I would like to thank each of you for showing the leadership and dedication that makes this company great. I promised to communicate with you in a transparent manner and will continue to do so.
We are now learning that several of our employees have tested presumptive positive for the coronavirus, and we expect that there will be more in the coming days. Please keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers. Their co-workers and those individuals who have had close prolonged contact have been notified. We are working with the health district to address these cases as quickly as we can.
In light of this news, we are recommending that all corporate employees whose teams are able to do so work from home beginning next week. Your leader will let you know if your team is one that is able to work from home. As always, if you are feeling ill, please stay home and consider using our telemedicine options. Information on the procedures will be shared with you and the policies can be found on MyMGM and LEO. If you have questions, please call the HR Hotline: (702) 693-7221 or (888) 719-7171.
As the nation grapples with the effort to contain the coronavirus, the travel industry has been challenged, and our company is no different. Business demand has decreased significantly. In response, we will temporarily close MGM Northfield Park tonight and have suspended operations of all nightclubs and day clubs. Our spas and salons will suspend operations as of Monday. Also, on Monday, approximately 150 food and beverage outlets will close, with more closing on a rolling basis. We are working diligently to minimize the impact on our employees through furloughs and layoffs which will begin next week. We will continue to pay our Flexible Time Off (FTO) eligible employees on furlough for two weeks and our hourly employees can use all available Paid Time Off (PTO) in their bank. We’ve also made the decision to maintain existing employees’ benefits, for individuals who are on our health plans and impacted by the layoffs or furloughs through June 30th. Some areas of our business operations have already begun layoffs in areas most immediately impacted by the slowdown in demand. These decisions are never made lightly, and we deeply regret the hardship it will place on these individuals and their families.
We are actively engaging with our industry colleagues, trade associations, and Federal delegation on legislation being considered by the Federal Government to provide financial relief for America’s workers and businesses.
There is much about this unique crisis that is unknown. But one thing that I do know is that MGM Resorts will weather this storm. We are resilient and we will lean on one another to get us through. In the not so distant future, I know we will be ready to welcome the hundreds of thousands of guests who come to our facilities every day to be served by the most amazing employees in the industry.

MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL - STUPID COMPANY TO WORK FOR
MGM us the worst company to work for. Every employee has only 14 month job span. Unless the employee transfer to another department or position he/she will be a target for next round of LAYOFFS. MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION is a stupid company to work for.
My friend works in-suite dining at The Signature at MGM Grand. He works full-time and has been there 9 years, but today he was laid off for at least the next 30 days. The company has been scrambling since last year to cut operating costs so they can pay for a new property overseas. Let’s say, hypothetically that these layoffs are strictly temporary and 100% attributable to flu panic. Let’s say too that MGM has only ever been an honorable and completely transparent employer with its “internal guests,” and the timing of the layoffs is strictly coincidental, and not a way to quietly cut jobs permanently. Time will tell, but from a guest’s perspective, It seems MGM is intent on taking the “hospitality” out of the hospitality business, replacing employees with automated kiosks, etc. As long as shareholders are happy with their profits, who cares about the cost to your workers, right? It’s short term thinking for short-term gains.
But like I said... MGM is honorable, reeking of integrity - you know, the kind of integrity that allowed them to sue the victims of the Oct 1 shooting. The effects of this pandemic panic are widespread and devastating on all fronts. Let’s remain confident that when this passes, MGM will do the right thing and get each and every laid off employee back to work.
