The Victorian Gambling and Casino Control Commission (VGCCC) has confirmed that an alleged comment about a female regulator by now-departed Tabcorp chief executive Adam Rytenskild is behind the investigation that led to his dismissal.

Tabcorp confirmed on Thursday that Rytenskild had left the wagering company with immediate effect after the alleged use of inappropriate and offensive language in the workplace.

VGCCC chairwoman Fran Thorn says the comments were allegedly made about a regulator.

“The commission acknowledges the resignation of Tabcorp’s CEO following allegations of inappropriate comments made about a female regulatory official,” Thorn said.
