Not long after Steve Wynn opened his Wynn Las Vegas in 2005, then the resort was accused of sexual discrimination. Employees accused the CEO of forcing them to have sex at the workplace. Wynn’s sexual misconduct almost put the future of the casino in jeopardy. And now, it seems like Wynn Resort hasn’t learnt a lesson.
Female employees in the company have launched a lawsuit against company employees who assert that gender bias is still prevalent. These charges are likely to put the company future in turmoil given that Wynn’s plans for an integrated resort in Japan might be affected.
Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that the charges were filed on 26th September.
According to the lawsuit, Brenna Schrader, a massage therapist also involved in the first scandal, was allegedly forced to perform sex acts by executives. Schrader and other victims of Wynn’s sexual appetite are referred to as prostitutes and sluts. Thus the workplace continues to allow discriminatory environments by blaming victims.
Schrader continue to assert that the working environment was like a prison. No one inside the company was willing to address her concerns. She adds that the company continued to support Steve Wynn’s official memorandums which were tailored to stop female employees from liberating themselves from sexual servitude.
However, Wynn Resorts continue to deny the allegations saying that they have investigated the complaints and followed appropriate procedures to investigate the matter. Wynn Resort might be required to validate the claims if the lawsuit gains a grip.
If Schrader can prove beyond doubt that the documented allegations are correct, then Wynn Resort will have a difficult time bouncing back again.
