Daily fantasy sports site FanDuel announced Wednesday that it has permanently banned its employees from participating in any daily fantasy sports betting, according to Reuters.

FanDuel also finally banned employees of rival companies from playing fantasy games on its site.

“We have permanently banned our employees from playing any daily fantasy games for money, on any site,” FanDuel said in a statement. “We will also require all customers to confirm that they are not an employee of any other third party fantasy site, and if they are, they will not be allowed to access our site.”

The New York Times reported on Monday that DraftKings employee Ethan Haskell admitted to leaking information about the players most frequently used in fantasy lineups on the site during the NFL’s Week 3.

That amounts to insider trading if we were talking about Wall Street.

The New York attorney general opened an inquiry into the matter on Tuesday, and now everyone’s running for cover, with ESPN pulling ads on their television programming.
