Resorts World New York City is undoubtedly one of the most well-known casinos in New York’s gambling history. However, even the highest-level establishments get complaints sometimes, and some of them are major.
One of such cases is when a female worker was harassed and assaulted by one of the customers, which resulted in Resorts World being accused of failing to fulfill their role of protecting their workers, especially females.
This type of harassment is the norm for New York casinos due to the type of customers, but casino security should be able to handle it well.
Harassment and Lawsuit
Bartender Tuwanna Anderson of the said casino said she was a victim of not only harassment but also a violent assault of none other than their own male staff, who her with physical injuries.
She said this occurred when Tomas Davis, the culprit, appeared intoxicated and choked her, being proven to be true due to a captured surveillance video. Of course, this resulted in the loss of Davis’ job at the casino.
Misconduct of The Casino
As this type of harassment is the norm in casinos, it should already be understood by security that it would inevitably happen.
There are cases where customers are the ones committing sexual abuse, such as the case of a disabled woman who was allegedly abused in the bathroom by a yet to be revealed male perpetrator.
Sometimes, it’s the work of the casino staff, considering that there was a case where a female security guard was allegedly sexually harassed and discriminated by her male supervisor.
What Did it Result to?
These accusations didn’t stop the issue, though, as recently, there has been a case where female workers were said to be regularly harassed by patrons. Of course, this doesn’t end well for the casinos as well as customers.
Some of the great casinos that prevent these issues may get their share of a bad reputation for misconduct, while other customers who are genuinely honest and just playing for fun or money are generalized by the poor behavior of others.
Another result of these issues is that due to the bad reputation of casinos, manpower from female workers (some may even include male workers) decreases for the fear of being harassed as well.
This then results in the decreased workforce and slower management, causing customers to receive poor service they don’t deserve.
Money or Respect?
While other casinos tackle the issue of sexual harassment by confronting these culprits, they still allow them to stay inside the casino, which may look disturbing for the victims. This just tells us that some casinos really do favor money over respecting and safeguarding their employees.
Although there are many casinos that are twisted or failing to fulfill their responsibilities, it’s still undeniable that there are some that really prioritizes their employees over anything else.
Fortunately, this brings hope to other casinos and perhaps it should give them a second chance to change their priorities.
