LVS Denies Discrimination Claims

Earlier this month, three former employees of the Las Vegas Sands filed a lawsuit against the company. They claimed that they were not promoted because of the colour of their skin, but the Las Vegas Sands legal team has pointed out flaws in their case against the company.

According to LVS, the three former employees did not file a discrimination lawsuit with the federal or state Equal Rights Commission. Instead, they added the claim to an existing lawsuit, seeking unpaid overtime.

Another suspicious fact is that the employees who filed the discrimination lawsuit never applied for the higher positions for which they claimed they were passed over. These positions included the personal protection of Sheldon Adelson, CEO of Las Vegas Sands.

The Las Vegas Sands also notes that it has won several diversity awards for its work in the community. The company has received accolades from the NAACP, National Coalition of 100 Black Women and the Frederick Douglass Educational Fund.

Today, allegations of racial discrimination are serious and they could damage a company’s reputation permanently. The Las Vegas Sands is working hard to disprove the accusation that the company has discriminated against any person of colour.
