One of Crown Casino’s founding fathers calls for apology to staff
One of the founding fathers of Crown Casino has called on management to apologise to the thousands of staff he says now feel like “second class citizens” telling people where they work in the wake of damning Royal Commission.
Crown has been found to be ‘unfit’ to run its Melbourne casino, with an eight-month investigation revealing a litany of legal and ethical breaches.
However, Commissioner Ray Finkelstein has decided not to strip Crown of its licence.
A “special manager” will be appointed for the next two years and report back to government, which has accepted all 33 of the recommendations.
Neil Mitchell spoke with John Haddad on Tuesday, asking for his thoughts on the matter.
He said he felt most for staff.
“I am extremely sad for them,” he said.
