Casino workers want sex harassment policy to include guests
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Casino industry representatives and workers say the initial policy draft proposal from Nevada gambling regulators to address sexual harassment in the workplace needs some work.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board heard input Thursday on its proposal that spells out several requirements for license holders, including a system for employees to report instances of sexual harassment.
The proposal comes in the wake of the sexual misconduct scandal surrounding former casino owner Steve Wynn, who has denied the allegations.
Members of the union representing thousands of casino workers told the board the proposal must address sexual harassment by guests and high rollers.
The regulations would also require licensees to regularly provide sexual harassment prevention training to all employees.
The largest casino operators have previously told The Associated Press they meet the requirements.
