The Nevada Gaming Commission approved amendments to state gaming regulations adding protection from sexual harassment and several forms of discrimination, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.
The amendment was approved unanimously by the five-member board, and enforcement takes effect immediately.
However, a section requiring a licensed gaming establishment to maintain written policies and procedures prohibiting workplace discrimination or harassment will not be enforced until the first day of the fourth month following the month of adoption, which would be March 1.
Some critics say the regulations do little more than duplicate those from the federal Equal Employment Opportunities Commission and the Nevada Equal Rights Commission.
Regulators started talking about sexual harassment regulations in May 2018, three months after a sexual harassment scandal at Wynn Resorts led to the resignation of its chairman and CEO, Steve Wynn, in February 2018.
