May I ask for the specific details of your enquiry? And what would be your desired outcome for this scenario? Thank you.
Legally speaking, there is nothing to stop an employee from having a second job. However, consideration needs to be given to the terms of the contract of employment as they may prohibit an employee from carrying out secondary employment. The employment contract for a senior employee will commonly include the provision that they will be expected to devote the whole of their time, attention and abilities to their employer’s business. The contract for a more junior employee may just require that permission to undertake secondary employment is first sought.
