Tohono O'odham Gaming Authority
To ensure the integrity of the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation, the gaming authority is held accountable to the Native American Tribal Government. The gaming authority is required to provide detailed reports to its governing bodies regarding employee ethnicity and budgets. This information ensures that the gaming authority is acting in accordance with tribal regulations. Payroll processing and benefit tracking in this casino environment are fraught with many complexities. As a hospitality-based company, most of Tohono O’odham’s employees receive tips that need to be recognized as income. The company treats accruals and benefits in a unique fashion as it allows employees to carry over benefits from year to year and even receive accruals for accruals.
