Yahoo employees will no longer be able to bet on paid fantasy sports sites, the Wall Street Journal reported Friday.

It’s following in the steps of FanDuel and DraftKings, two top fantasy sports sites, which instituted similar policies for their workers after it was found that employees were using their own site’s data to win on the rival site.

“Yahoo is dedicated to operating all of its products with integrity and always wants to ensure that our games are fair to all of our users,” said a Yahoo spokesperson to the publication. “Currently Yahoo employees are not allowed to play daily fantasy in paid public contests on our site,” and “we have decided to extend this policy to include paid public contests on all daily fantasy sites.”
