ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) - A union official says employees of The Showboat Casino Hotel will receive notices on Friday warning that the casino may close in two months.
Bob McDevitt, president of Local 54 of the Unite-HERE union, says a Caesars Entertainment executive told him the casino's approximately 2,500 workers would get so-called WARN Act notices on Friday.
Those notices are required under federal law to give employees 60 days notice that their company could be closing.
Caesars Entertainment officials did not immediately return messages seeking comment Thursday night.
Caesars CEO Gary Loveman said earlier this year Atlantic City has too many casinos, and that more need to close.
The Atlantic Club casino closed in January.
