3. Requirements for waiver.  Upon application by a slot machine operator, casino operator, slot machine distributor, table game distributor or gambling services vendor, the board may waive the employee license requirement under this section if the slot machine operator, casino operator, slot machine distributor, table game distributor or gambling services vendor demonstrates to the board's satisfaction that the public interest is not served by the requirement of the employee license.

4. Employees authorized temporarily.   A new employee of a slot machine operator, casino operator, slot machine distributor, table game distributor or gambling services vendor is temporarily authorized to work in a position requiring an employee license pursuant to subsection 1 as of the date a completed employee license application is received by the board. A completed employee license application is composed of:
A. The completed form for application for an employee license approved by the board; [2013, c. 212, §14 (NEW).]
B. Two complete sets of the fingerprints of the applicant; [2013, c. 212, §14 (NEW).]

D. The results of the background investigation conducted by the employer. [2013, c. 212, §14 (NEW).]
If the department determines after receiving an employee license application under this subsection that the application is incomplete, it may suspend the new employee's temporary authorization until such time as the new employee files a completed application.
Temporary authorization is not available for renewal of employee licenses.
[ 2013, c. 212, §14 (NEW) .]
5. Termination of temporary authorization.   Unless suspended or revoked, a temporary authorization under subsection 4 continues until the granting or denial of the new employee's employee license application in accordance with sections 1016, 1017 and 1019 and any applicable rules adopted by the board. An applicant whose temporary authorization is suspended or revoked is not eligible for employment in a position requiring an employee license pursuant to subsection 1 until such time as the suspension or revocation is withdrawn or an employee license is issued.
