Absent express prior approval from human resources, the company does not permit moonlighting — working for another company while employed by our Company. While the company does not seek to intrude on employee’s personal lives, moonlighting impacts on an employees ability to dedicate him or herself to the company. Clearly, working for a competitor is unacceptable and will lead to immediate termination. Other employment, while not directly competitive with our operations, also may impact adversely on an employee’s ability to work. That holds true for self-employment. Accordingly, if your circumstances require that you work a second job, or you intend to pursue your own business, please discuss the matter with the Director of Human Resources.
