Bally agrees to pay $125,000 fine for failing to register workers

CARSON CITY — Bally Gaming Inc. has agreed to pay a $125,000 fine for failing to register at least 28 workers with the state Gaming Control Board.

The settlement, dated Jan. 8, was posted on the board’s website today.

The board said Bally executives agreed during negotiations of the settlement to attend registration classes.

Bally, headquartered in Las Vegas, was fined $65,000 in 2008 for not registering 56 employees. The company manufactures, operates and distributes electronic gaming devices.

The more recent complaint, filed Dec. 24, listed 28 counts in which employees started work with the company before signing up with the state. One worker was employed for 10 years before he registered, according to the complaint.

During negotiations, Bally audited its employees’ registrations and found an additional 23 workers who had failed to register.

The gaming board said Bally has corrected the deficiencies and an additional complaint would not be filed against the company.

The board said Bally has taken “additional remedial steps” to ensure similar violations do not happen again.

The proposed fine still must be approved by the state Gaming Commission.
