Following a number of sexual misconduct and sexual harassment allegations made against him, Steve Wynn recently resigned from his position as Republican National Committee fundraiser. However, the resignation is just part of the fallout of these allegations, with Wynn Resorts-related stocks being downgraded over the past few days, and continued calls for bodies to both return contributions and publicly disavow support for Wynn, and all organizations associated with him. Wynn continues to deny all claims of sexual misconduct.
Although Wynn denies all allegations of sexual harassment, the current climate means that the issue isn’t going to simply go away. As famous and formerly powerful men in a range of industries, including celebrities, have been fired or resigned from their roles under a cloud of similar allegations, calls continue for ongoing consequences for Steve Wynn.
As employees as Wynn’s various businesses receive numerous calls and contact from journalists about the allegations, the RNC has been asked to return money received through Wynn’s involvement, or donate it to worthy causes. Politicians who have been endorsed by Wynn, including Senator Dean Heller, have also been asked to disavow these endorsements. It has also been requested that donations made alongside endorsements be returned or donated to charity.
Casino mogul Wynn has also seen a higher than normal level of cancellations across his resorts.
While allegations of sexual harassment seem particularly common over recent months, the severity of such behavior should never be underestimated. Nobody should become desensitized to sexual misconduct, and the last effects it can have on both victims and their families.
Women in the workplace have long been expected to simply accept inappropriate comments from male colleagues and bosses, with clear sexual harassment being dismissed as “boys being boys”. If sexual comments, innuendos, and jokes made in poor taste are making you feel uncomfortable at work, that’s not ok. Comments about your clothing, manner, or “provocative” behavior aren’t acceptable in the modern workplace either.
