Outside Employment Policy
The issue of outside employment presents a challenge for many organizations. On
one side, employers are concerned that “moonlighting” will lead to divided
allegiance, conflicts of interest, and poor job performance. However, they also
recognize that they cannot, and do not want to, control their employees’
off-duty activities. In addition, both employers and employees are embracing new
relationships that include the use of part-time and temporary workers and
flexible scheduling such as job sharing and telecommuting. As a result, multiple
jobholders are a growing segment of the workforce and attitudes toward outside
employment and strict loyalty to one employer are changing.
This document helps employers determine when it might
be appropriate to limit outside work and when and how an employer might be able
to do this.
