The Golden Nugget Fined for Violation of Surveillance Regulations

A couple of days ago, it was announced that the Golden Nugget, one of many gambling enterprises in Atlantic City that are still running, had been imposed a $30,000 fine by the local Division of Gaming Enforcement, due to violation for the regulations concerning the surveillance of gambling venues.

The regulatory body fined the Golden Nugget for dismissing the supervisor of surveillance a few months ago for no reason that is apparent. Tom Pohlman, who was taking the position of general manager at the place, terminated the agreement associated with the employee under consideration and stated that his/her emails should be re-directed to him. In addition, Mr. Pohlman took fee associated with the casino’s surveillance department and ordered that all supervisors should report straight to him.

According to filings released by the DGE, Mr. Pohlman had repeatedly made attempts to govern the surveillance policy of this place and also to hinder the actions for the surveillance department even before its supervisor, whose identification was not revealed, had been fired.

A surveillance director can be dismissed only if an independent audit committee decides so under the New Jersey state laws. Mr. Pohlman got a three-day suspension without pay and a suggestion to re-read the casino protection rules and regulations one more time.

Steve Scheinthal, who is presently using the place of the counsel that is general Laundry’s Inc., Golden Nugget’s parent business, stated in a special declaration regarding the matter that they absolutely did not agree with DGE’s claims and choice.
