Locating to Laughlin? Here's some help.

Laughlin is located in the southeastern most corner of Clark County, Nevada, bordering Arizona and California. Laughlin is a growing gaming community, which lies on the banks of the Colorado River. Laughlin's economic structure is mainly our resort hotels and casinos, Mohave Electric Generating Station and Davis Dam's hydroelectric facility.

Working in Laughlin

To work in a gaming establishment in Nevada you will need to obtain a few things first. Once you have been hired your place of employment will send you to obtain a Sheriff’s Card or Work Card, Health Card and TAM card (you must obtain a referral from your employer before you can apply for these cards.). Everyone who works in any gaming establishment must obtain a Sheriffs card and this registers you with the Clark County Metropolitan Police Department. If you will be handling food or alcohol you must also obtain a Health Card, which teaches you proper food handling techniques, and they also test you for TB. If you will be working with alcohol you will also need to obtain a TAM card, which is an alcohol awareness card, and they teach you the proper way to handle alcohol and customers.
