A report by Massachusetts casino regulators has found that Wynn Resorts executives concealed for years allegations of sexual misconduct against company founder Steve Wynn.

The report by the state Gaming Commission’s investigative team doesn’t make a recommendation to regulators but concludes by saying the five-member panel should evaluate the company’s recent reforms in the context of the report’s findings.

The report was released Tuesday as the commission opened a series of hearings on whether Wynn officials knowingly hid information about the allegations, which Steve Wynn has denied, when it sought a casino license in 2013. The hearings have implications for Encore Boston Harbor, the $2.6 billion Boston-area resort the company plans to open in June.

Wynn Resorts didn’t dispute the facts of the nearly 200-page report and said it represents a “complete review.”
