PROBLEM GAMBLING IN THE WORKPLACE

 

“Problem gambling in the workplace can be difficult to detect. You can’t smell gambling on an employee’s breath and since many forms of gambling are legal, employees admit they gamble. Some gamblers report betting over $200,000 from their cell phone while at work. Employees may resort to theft and embezzlement. Further, many gambling addicts are driven and otherwise model employees.”

-Eric Groh MS LPC NCGC II President; Georgia Council on Problem Gambling and a National Certified Gambling Counselor.
