Super Bowl LIII is right around the corner, and March Madness will be upon us in the blink of an eye. You know what that means, right? Betting, brackets, office pools … and potential civil and criminal liability. So sorry to put a damper on the fun.

With sports betting occurring in plain view on the office floor, what, if anything, should Florida employers do? Organize and participate in the pools? Look the other way as it occurs? Adopt policies that ban all workplace gambling (and all the fun)?
