Security guards sue The Cosmopolitan, claim work without compensation

A pair of security guards at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas have sued the resort for forcing them to work off the clock without compensation.

The case, brought in Clark County District Court, seeks class-action status for more than 200 people in the security department.

According to the complaint filed on Wednesday, guards Basil Black and Aaron James were required to perform tasks such as checking in and checking out equipment while not punched in for their shifts. In addition, they were not paid for the time they actually worked if it ran beyond their schedules.

The guards claim the practice has been going for three years. Court papers did not include an estimated amount of damages.

Cosmopolitan officials declined to comment.
