BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Seneca Resorts & Casinos announced temporary furloughs for some employees Thursday as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The temporary furloughs are effective Monday April 6 with no date specified for the furloughs to end.

Employees who are temporarily furloughed will continue to receive health, dental, disability, vision and life insurance coverage through May 31.

“Seneca Resorts & Casinos has continued to monitor this unprecedented situation locally and globally daily. We have reached the very difficult decision that temporary furloughs are necessary at this time. Impacted team members were notified first and we will continue to guide them through this process with our internal Human Resources hotline. Since our closure, across all three properties, Seneca Resorts & Casinos has provided three weeks of PTO to over 3,700 team members to help alleviate the impact to their families during this time. We hope to end this furlough quickly and welcome our team members, our Seneca family, back as soon as possible,” said Holly Gagnon, President & CEO, Seneca Gaming Corporation. “Until we can all be together again we ask that everyone Stay Home, Stay Healthy, and we will See You Soon.”
