Moonlighting, the practice of working for another organization in a separate job in addition to one’s current employment, is a fairly common practice these days. It’s especially frequent in technology where people with varying skills and backgrounds may find their abilities in demand by multiple companies and in need of multiple streams of income to provide for themselves and their families.

Working multiple jobs does not in itself pose a risk to either the employee’s primary organization or the employee’s occupation therein, but there are certain requirements which must be established and fully met to ensure the conditions under which an employee moonlights are fair for both themselves and the organization.

The purpose of this policy is to provide guidelines for permissible employee moonlighting practices to establish expectations for both workers and organizations. This policy can be customized as needed to fit the needs of your organization.
