Lawsuit against Wynn Resorts describes hostile work environment

A lawsuit filed against Wynn Resorts and Steve Wynn claims the workplace at the casino remains hostile for the women who made accusations of sexual harassment against the former CEO.

The lawsuit, filed on behalf of a massage therapist at Wynn Resorts, said executives at the company “mentally abuse” victims by calling them prostitutes.

It alleges the “company continues to outwardly support defendant Wynn through memorandum and its employees.”

The lawsuit also claims defendants blame victims for the “discriminatory environment that permeates the workplace,” following the original case brought forward against CEO Wynn.

Wynn stepped down as the operator’s CEO and Chairman in February 2018 after several claims of misconduct and sexual harassment were made against him, despite denying the allegations.

In the original lawsuit, the Massachusetts Gaming Commission ordered Wynn Resorts to pay a $35m fine and said the defendants had shown little interest in preventing similar cases in the future.

A statement from Wynn Resorts said it is committed to a fair, supportive and open work environment, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports. It added that the company takes prompt action and addresses each and every harassment complaint it receives.
