Imagine that you're looking to work at a tennis shop. But here's one of the rules once you get hired: you can't play tennis anymore.

That might be how some employees at the Boston-based fantasy sports site DraftKings are feeling after it was announced that both DraftKings and the New York-based site FanDuel are banning employees from playing on rival sites.

The announcement comes after a DraftKings data leak raised questions about the ethics of the games.
