The Star stands down 8,100 workers

The Star Entertainment Group is the latest listed firm to stand down the bulk of its workforce with 8,100 workers suspended following the closure of its food, beverage, conferencing, and gaming facilities.

The company on Wednesday said its casino operations in Sydney, Gold Coast and Brisbane have been severely curtailed following government imposed bans on gatherings and non-essential services, necessitating a temporary standdown of 90 per cent of its staff. 

“The Star has taken a very difficult, but necessary, decision in relation to its workforce … these stand downs include senior management,” The company said in a release.
