Macau approves gaming ban bill for casino workers

By site_editor

Yogonet (July 12 2018) and other media report that the Chinese enclave legislature has passed proposed legislation barring gaming workers from entering casino floors outside work hours.

The first draft of a new casino workers gaming ban bill in Macau has been approved by Macau's Legislative Assembly (AL). However, there are concerns over the possible impact on workers' rights or the practicality of enforcing the regulations.

Secretary for Economy and Finance, Lionel Leong Vai Tac, reiterated duringthe  debate at the AL that in the five years since the first regulations on casino entry were enacted in 2012, data from the Social Welfare Bureau (IAS) showed that gaming workers and card dealers represented the highest percentage of people with gaming addiction issues.
