Nevada Regulation Changes on Sexual Harassment Reporting Start March 1

February 24, 2020, CDC Gaming Reports, by Howard Stutz–

Changes to Nevada’s gaming regulations that provide all employees with increased protection against workplace harassment and discrimination go into effect Sunday.

“The language applies to everybody,” said A.G. Burnett, a partner with the McDonald Carano law firm in Reno. “The larger companies have compliance programs and they have these policies in place.  There are vendors and possibly restricted gaming license holders (15 or fewer slot machines) that might not realize they (also) have to comply with the regulation change.”

McDonald Carano partner Laura Jacobsen, who specializes in employment law, added that, prior to the regulation change, major gaming companies had policies in place in compliance with the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the Nevada Equal Rights Commission on discrimination issues.

Jacobsen said the language covering the written policies for vendors and smaller companies “was vague.” She said the changes now require those written procedures to be in place.  To read the entire article click here.
