CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court says a mandatory tip-sharing policy at Wynn casinos on the Las Vegas Strip is allowable under law.

In a unanimous decision issued Thursday, the high court reserved a lower court that said employees can't be forced to share tips with supervisors or employees in other kinds of jobs.

Dealers argued that $5 million a year was being diverted to supervisors and that the 2006 tip sharing policy was enacted to provide raises for supervisors without harming corporate coffers.

Justices rejected that argument, saying Wynn didn't keep any of the money from the tip pool but distributed it among employees.

But not all issues are resolved. The high court remanded the case back to Clark County District Court to review whether other labor statutes prohibit tip sharing.
