I thought about this a little more and maybe everyone would lose!
Let's say a new employee signs an agreement that he won't use company equipment for personal use and signed other documents about proper conduct in the workplace, which might mention anything from sexual harassment, use of profanity, dress codes and gambling to showing up for work on time & sober. By scanning & email lottery tickets, isn't this person breaking the contract?
So then the Lottery can say the winning ticket is void since it was purchased in violation of a legal & binding contract.
Seriously, I doubt if anything would ever happen and I can't imagine a judge awarding a cut to the company. Still, keeping personal business separate from the workplace is always best.
