Nevada Regulator Told Casino Workers Must Be Protected From Customers as Well as Employers
Casino union representatives and other stakeholders told the Nevada Gaming Control Board at a hearing on Wednesday that its draft guidelines to tighten up settings on intimate harassment within the Nevada Casino sector must extend to resort guests and high-rollers.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board hears testimonies from casino workers at a hearing on its brand new workplace sexual harassment guidelines. Chairwoman Becky Harris (right) has said violation of regulations could result in license revocation for operators.
In March, the regulator announced it would be sharpening its regulations on intimate harassment on the job in the aftermath of allegations of sexual misconduct by Steve Wynn against their workers.
Wynn Resorts, meanwhile, is facing a few legal actions from disgruntled shareholders, accusing the business board of knowing for the behavior that is alleged of chairman and of addressing it up.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board wrote to Nevada’s almost 3,000 gaming licensees notifying them that new regulations had been on their way and industry that is inviting to contribute.
The Customer is Not Always Right
As reported by the Associated Press, Robert Ostrovsky, lobbyist for the Nevada Resort Association, echoed the Culinary Union’s belief that employees must be better protected from guests, that are often indulged by casino administration and given the question especially if they’re big spenders.
