Employment Law This Week® (Episode 106: Week of February 26, 2018) has released bonus footage of its interview with Bill Milani, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.

Mr. Milani discusses how sexual misconduct allegations have started impacting shareholder value and reputation. A case study now exists in Wynn Resorts. After The Wall Street Journal uncovered multiple sexual misconduct allegations against Casino mogul Steve Wynn, the company’s stock fell nearly 20 percent. Wynn resigned a week later, but the company’s troubles were far from over. The company’s stock has lost $3 billion in value. The first shareholder lawsuit was filed the day that Wynn resigned, and, to date, three suits by shareholders claim that Wynn and the Board breached their fiduciary duties to the company and its shareholders.
