Between the soccer world cup, the Olympic Games and tennis tournaments, some years are full of sporting events. Employees may sometimes take the initiative and organize sports betting within the company. The employer must handle this situation with care.
A simple bet between colleagues for fun can quickly turn into a bet for profit. Betting is subject to strict rules. Employers must be careful not to allow employees to organize illegal bets within the company. Failure to do so may result in liability.
Sports betting can lead to workplace conflicts, especially due to bad losers or employees who refuse to bet. Employers must meet their obligations to prevent and manage workplace conflicts. The employer is obliged to take the necessary measures to avoid any violation of an employee's personality.
