Raiders' culture blamed for turnover, lawsuits

The LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL takes a deep dive into the culture of the Raiders under the header, "How a 'boys club' Raiders culture fueled turnover, lawsuits and harassment claims.” Raiders employees said that the team “enabled a culture in Oakland and Las Vegas that left them feeling unsupported, underpaid and at risk of retaliation if they voiced concerns.” Those complaints “were echoed in multiple lawsuits” filed over the course of a decade. Women who used to work for the team also “alleged a troubling pattern of harassment, forced demotions and unequal treatment,” with one calling it “a ‘boys club and the Mob wrapped in one.’” The “high-profile exits” of at least 10 Raiders leaders in the past year “underscore the organization’s ongoing internal turmoil.” Raiders Owner Mark Davis said, “Eventually, I will have something to say about all of this, but not right now” (LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL, 6/26).
