LAWRENCEBURG, Ind. (Inside INdiana Business) – Hollywood Casino Lawrenceburg has announced plans to reduce its workforce. In a notice to the state, the casino says 41 employees will be permanently laid off beginning in mid-August.

While the company says the layoff will be permanent, Hollywood expects the facility to remain open.

Hollywood Casino says the layoffs are a result of COVID-19 related business circumstances that were “sudden, dramatic and beyond our control.”

The casino cites closures of its properties and the interruption of nearly all business and travel as primary factors in its decision.

Hollywood Casino’s notice follows other recent lay off notices, including Ameristar Casino in East Chicago, which announced its plans to lay off 127 employees in September.
