The Phoenix Suns and Sports & Entertainment Services will compensate part-time staff and hourly workers, including employees that work in guest service relations, ticketing, security, parking and events services who were scheduled to work cancelled Disney on Ice shows and the currently postponed Suns games on March 18th and 21st. Staffing for April events had not been conducted at the time of the NBA postponement.
The health and safety of our entire Suns Family – including players, coaches, full and part-time staff – is paramount but we understand that we are dealing with an unprecedented and constantly-evolving situation and we want to help alleviate the financial uncertainly for those most affected by the current stoppage of live events. The current situation transcends sports and entertainment and we will continue to review and update our policies to ensure that we are fully supporting the entire Suns Family throughout this process.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver shared with fans on Thursday that the hiatus would last for at least 30 days and the intent is to resume the season, if and when it becomes safe for all concerned.
