Federal investigators are taking accusations from a server very seriously, who applied for a job at Hyde at the Bellagio Hotel and claims that a manager demanded sexually explicit photos and sexual favors.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is investigating the server’s claim that she was passed over for a job at the Hyde nightclub in the Bellagio hotel on the Vegas strip because she wouldn’t have sex with a manager.
The potential server, Katie Clayton alleged that one manager, Abe Ismail in particular was in contact with her after a casting, and asked her to send nude photos and have sex with him. In the text messages, he indicated this was common practice, even though he was not involved in the selection process.
An attorney for Hyde Bellagio says that the employee was fired immediately after Clayton complained to them, and that they then decided to not fill the position.
