Uncasville, Conn (WTNH) - News 8 has uncovered a new memo at Mohegan Sun that calls on employees to "sex it up" on the job.
A Mohegan Sun memo that was sent out Tuesday was meant to create excitement and improve the guest experience at the casino, but one worker tells us it is also creating concern among employees.
Preserve the Core and Stimulate Progress. A memo meant only for employees shows how the casino could do that including fake jackpot sounds, paging celebrities, and the suggestion that employees 'sex it up.'
"For a company that's against sexual harassment you don't use those words in a memo because that in itself is sexual harassment," a Mohegan Sun employee said.
Another employee who did not want to be identified says morale is down after hundreds were laid off. People are feeling less secure, and now say they are being asked to do more.
"I have a lot of female friends that work there. For them how do you think they're gonna take it ya know? It's telling them show a little this get a little of that," a casino employee said.
"Sex it up doesn't mean sex in the traditional way. It means make things exciting make things current. It deals with music it deals possibly having some live things happening on the floor but we're not talking about go go dancers or sexy outfits," Mohegan Sun CEO Mitchell Etess said.
Etess says it's another misunderstanding.
"People don't want to talk about it because they're scared they might lose their job," said an employee.
"Once you have a layoff at any business people are concerned about it happening again and we've been doing everything we can to let our employees know that is not happening," Etess said.
So far there have been no formal complaints at the casino because this is not a formal policy. It's a list of brainstorming ideas and if any of them are implemented they may have to be explained in detail to the employees.
