iGaming Management

Having experienced and proficient personnel entrusted with the management and running of an iGaming operation is undoubtedly an essential ingredient for the successful growth of the company. In addition to this, supplementary help may be acquired in different areas through the recruitment of employees. Indeed, an iGaming company’s workforce constitutes a substantial asset.

In this regard, our legal department can be of assistance through the drafting of the necessary employment contracts for the regulation of the relationship between the iGaming operator and the employee. These contracts are drafted in such a manner so as to cater for the specific characteristics of this relationship which emanate from the licensable nature of the activity being performed by the iGaming operator.

In particular, owing to the licensable nature of an iGaming operation, the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority must ensure that persons being employed by an operator to carry out work which is directly related to the gaming system are fit and proper persons. For this purpose, prospective employees of iGaming operators must be vetted by the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority. Our legal department can guide you through the process of compilation of the necessary due diligence documentation as it relates to the relevant iGaming prospective employee and the subsequent submission of the necessary documentation to the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority.

Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates can also assist you through the practical aspect of employment, particularly through a number of ancillary services to those contemplated above. In particular, we can assist with the recruitment process, namely through the advertising of vacancies, selection, interviewing and short-listing of candidates and other related services.

Once the employee has been successfully chosen and approved of by the Malta Lotteries and Gaming Authority, the iGaming employer is duty-bound to register the employee with the Employment and Training Corporation in Malta. In addition to this, in cases where the employee is a non-EU national, certain Malta work permits must be acquired prior to the commencement of employment. In this regard, we are able to assist with the compilation and filing of the necessary documentation with the relevant authorities for the attainment of the required Malta work permits. From a legal perspective, we can offer advice and guidance with respect to Maltese employment law and the resulting rights and obligations applicable to employers and employees in this regard.
