Wynn Resorts worker files lawsuit, alleging a hostile work environment against her

Home » Wynn Resorts worker files lawsuit, alleging a hostile work environment against her

Years after she claimed then-CEO Steve Wynn forced her to work as an on-call sexual servant, a Wynn Resorts massage therapist has filed a lawsuit alleging the company continues to create a hostile working environment for her.
Brenna Schrader, the accuser, has filed a lawsuit on her behalf. It states that “from 2012 to 2018, the plaintiff was subjected to rape and sexual assaults by either Mr. Wynn or a VIP guest, and was required to remain on call for Mr. Wynn’s sexual satisfaction.” This rendered the plaintiff unable to defend herself or flee, and she frequently displayed symptoms of Stockholm syndrome.”

Attorneys Robert Eglet, Tracy Eglet, and Danielle Miller filed the lawsuit in Clark County District Court.

In addition to sexual allegations, the lawsuit filed on Thursday stated that “[Schrader] continues to face hostile and retaliatory treatment, as well as sexually hostile conduct for female employees to this day.”

Furthermore, the lawsuit filed on Schrader’s behalf accuses Wynn Resorts’ former executive Maurice Wooden of attempting to conceal Wynn’s sexual misconduct. Wooden has also been accused of posting memos pleading with employees not to support Wynn. According to the lawsuit, “this created an environment in which many employees began to refer to Mr. Wynn’s accusers as sluts and prostitutes.”

Schrader claims she was forced to work with an employee who referred to her as a prostitute and supported the firings of workers who claimed Wynn victimized them.

She also claims that she was forced to use the locker next to her allegedly abusive coworker.

“Defendants are attempting to create an atmosphere so hostile that the plaintiff will be forced to resign,” the lawsuit continued.

Schrader is also a defendant in a federal class action lawsuit filed in 2019 against Steve Wynn and Wynn Resorts by another complainant.
