A former SkyCity employee has been charged over the alleged misappropriation of more than $2 million from the casino group.

Police on Tuesday said a 40-year-old woman would be appearing in Hamilton District Court this week facing 49 fraud-related charges relating to misappropriation of $2.56 million from her employer.

The woman is Tessa Grant who worked for SkyCity Hamilton from 2006-2014 initially as finance manager before being promoted to general manager.

SkyCity earlier launched a civil action against Grant in the High Court at Auckland seeking to recover $1.26m.

Grant is due to appear in the Hamilton District court on Wednesday.
