1. A key employee licence is required by every executive director or agent of, or any person in the employ of the holder of any operator licence, other than a junket operator licence issued under this Act ("the principal licence") who may exercise direct control over gaming operations or the activities authorised by the principal licence or such other person, whom the Board may identify, who may exercise control over any premises where gaming is conducted under this Act.
   
 
2. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsections (1) and (3), persons employed in any of the following or substantially similar positions by the holders of the licences referred to in subsection (1) shall be regarded as key employees for the purposes of this section
 
a. managers
b. supervisors
c. pit bosses
d. pit clerks
e. inspectors
f. surveillance personnel
g. any other position as may be prescribed or may be considered by the Board to be that of a key employee generally or in relation to any gaming business in particular
   
 
3. For the purposes of this section, direct control over gaming operations or the activities authorised by the principal licence means the express, implied or reasonably incidental authority to supervise, oversee, monitor or otherwise control any activity in respect of gaming operations which, in the opinion of the Board, may reasonably enable the person on whom such authority is conferred
 
a. to manipulate or alter the selection of criteria which determine the result of any game on which wagering is accepted;
b. to engage or participate in cheating, as defined in section 65; or
c. to misrepresent to any authority the tax liability of the licence holder.
   
 
4. If the Board considers that an employee of any licence holder referred to in subsection (1) is a key employee, it shall serve written notice to that effect upon the licence holder by whom such employee is employed.
   
 
5. The holder of the licence referred to in subsection (4) shall, within thirty days of receipt of a written notice referred to in subsection (4), present to the Board an application in the prescribed form for the licensing of such employee as a key employee or provide adequate proof that such employee is no longer employed by it.
   
 
6. An employee who is subject to application for licensing as a key employee under subsection (4) may make written representations to the Board to reconsider his status within the business concerned, and if the Board thereupon determines that the employee is not a key employee, such employee shall be permitted to withdraw his application.
   
 
7. In determining whether or not an employee is a key employee, the Board shall not be restricted by the job title or designation of an employee, but may consider the extent and impact of the functions and responsibilities of such employee in the gaming environment.
   
 
8. Save as may be provided for in this Act or prescribed, no person required by this Act to hold a key employee licence shall be employed by or assist a licence holder before he has obtained the requisite licence.
   
 
9. Upon application for a key employee licence the Board shall perform a full investigation to determine whether the applicant qualifies for such licence under section 24 and is not disqualified under section 25.
   
 
10. After the issue of a key employee licence
 
a. a limited probity investigation shall be performed in respect of the annual application for the renewal of such licence for each of the following two consecutive years; and
b. a full probity investigation shall be performed in respect of the application for renewal of the licence after every three years.
   
 
11. For the purposes of subsection (10)(a), a limited probity investigation shall require the applicant for the renewal of the relevant licence to submit, in conjunction with its written application for the renewal of the licence, documentary evidence which
 
a. provides adequate proof
 
(i) of the identity of such applicant;
(ii) that the applicant has not, at any time during the period of currency of his existing licence, become disqualified to hold such licence by virtue of having been convicted of any criminal offence; and
(iii) that the applicant has not been subjected to any disciplinary proceedings instituted by his employer at any time during the period of currency of his existing licence; and
 
b. is accompanied by a sworn statement confirming that the applicant is not disqualified under the provisions of section 25(1).
   
 
12. Any person in respect of whom the Board has refused a licence under this section may, by written notice and within thirty days of the refusal of the licence, appeal to the Minister against the refusal of the licence in the manner prescribed.
   
 
13. In determining whether or not an employee is a key employee, the Board shall not be restricted by the job title or designation of an employee, but may consider the extent and impact of the functions and responsibilities of such employee in the gaming environment.
