Australia.- Around 11,500 Crown Resorts employees who were stood down due to the Covid-19 pandemic will have access to a hardship fund supported by their union.

The gaming company said on Wednesday that workers in financial hardship will be able to apply for discretionary funds from Friday (May 29).

Crown Resorts cut 95 per cent of its staff after Covid-19 restrictions were enforced across Australia.

At the time, Chief Executive Ken Barton said: “I have a deep gratitude to our employees for their understanding and commitment during this painful and highly uncertain time.

“We are continuing to investigate ways in which we can support our employees on an ongoing basis.”

In addition to the hardship fund, Crown has already introduced a two-week special payment and $1,000 for casuals to assist their staff during the crisis.
