A former dealer previously employed by the Galaxy Entertainment Group, along with gaming labor group Union of New Macau Gaming Workers Rights has submitted a petition letter to the Labour Affairs Bureau (DSAL) on Monday, reports Macau Business Daily.
The dismissed dealer, surnamed Chao was allegedly unfairly dismissed in September last year.
“Right after the dismissal from my previous company, I filed a complaint to the DSAL. Since then, I have been unemployed for more than one year. The issue has not been settled and I have still heard nothing from the Bureau yet,” the former dealer said to reporters.
Chao said she believes she has been blacklisted by her previous company, and potentially by other gaming operators, and has had trouble finding work in a similar field since her dismissal.
“It is very hard for me to find a new job because I was fired by my previous company. Other gaming companies won’t hire me when they find out I was fired before,” Chao said.
Chao also revealed that some of her former colleagues had been fired earlier this year for taking increased sick leave from work.
Director of the Union of New Macau Gaming Workers’ Rights, Cloee Chao told reporters she had received similar cases involving local dealers being fired and having a hard time finding another job in a casino.
