Workplace Sweepstakes – there are laws governing it!

Workplace SweepstakesPerhaps I’m naive but I never considered there could be laws on workplace gambling (or workplace sweepstakes)!

Football, horse-racing, Wimbledon – just about any event can bring on the need for a sweepstake. But it’s best to take a few minutes to make sure your company isn’t breaking the law.

The law in England, Wales and Scotland (the Gambling Act 2005, amended 2015) says that you cannot organise a sweepstake without a licence. However, there are exceptions for those organised in the workplace – the legislation calls these ‘work lotteries’.

This article outlines what the rules are for Workplace Sweepstakes under the Gambling Act 2005, so Employers can make sure they’re not doing anything illegal!
