CCC investigates another IPI contractor

Saipan’s casino regulator is investigating the company contracted to construct baccarat tables for Saipan’s newest casino for illegal labor practices, Marianas Variety reports.

The Commonwealth Casino Commission executive director Edward Deleon Guerrero said the company, cmcmacau com, a contractor for Imperial Pacific International is not a registered business or employer in the commonwealth.

Its workers are claiming that they have not been paid by their employer.

Deleon Guerrero said “when they [cmcmacau.com] came out here, they [were not] employers but…representatives of a contractor that constructs tables [for the casino].”

The employees said that they entered Saipan as tourists, and eventually hired by CMC to construct slot machines and baccarat tables.

A protest will be staged on Thursday morning to get back unpaid wages.
