Satellite casino employees interests are protected: Chan

The Macau government has reiterated that it protects the legal rights of all gaming workers in the city, including those working at satellite casinos, local media reports.

Paulo Martins Chan, director of the Gaming Inspection and Coordination Bureau (DICJ) reportedly made the comment in a response to a written enquiry from legislator Ella Lei Cheng I, urging the government to set up measures to ensure the rights of workers at satellite casinos.

But Chan said regardless of whether the property is operated directly by the concessionaire, or a sub-concessionaire, or set up as a satellite, employers are required to provide the best working conditions for their employees.

He said that the DICJ monitors satellite casinos on a regular basis, using the same monitoring systems as that of the major casinos in Macau.
