BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- In a statement Friday, a spokesperson for Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker said the governor was "deeply disturbed" by the sexual assault allegations against Steve Wynn and expects them to be taken seriously.

"This administration has a zero tolerance policy for sexual harassment and expects the Commonwealth’s employers to create a safe work environment for all employees where reporting harassment of any kind is encouraged and properly addressed," the statement read.

On Friday, the Wall Street Journal published a story in which past employees of Wynn Resorts claimed Wynn sexualized his workplace, and pressured employees into sex.

Wynn Resorts has plans to open an Everett property in 2019.

A Mass. Gaming Commission spokesperson said it will conduct a regulatory review of Wynn's license.

"The suitability and integrity of our gaming licensees is of the utmost importance," the spokesperson said.

The Gaming Commission did not say what the consequences might be if the allegations are found to be credible--the statement says only that it would then determine the appropriate next steps.

Wynn denies the allegations.
