Shareholders of casino operator Wynn Resorts voted against the company's executive compensation plan at its annual meeting last week, Wynn said in a regulatory filing late on Tuesday.

The company's founder, Steve Wynn, resigned earlier this year after allegations of sexual misconduct and disposed his entire 11.8 percent stake in the firm for $2.1 billion.

Nearly 80 percent of the company's shareholders voted against the compensation proposal.

Wynn Resorts could not be immediately reached for comment on the vote.

In a separate filing on Tuesday, Wynn said the compensation committee would comprise all three of its recently-appointed female board members.

The company had said the appointments, made last month, were intended to help "improve the workplace environment and further stabilize Wynn".
