Vol. 45, No. 10
Here is sample language for a generic moonlighting policy, provided by Diane Pratt, vice president of electronic HR at KnowledgePoint, an HR software firm in Petaluma, Calif.:
"Employees may hold outside jobs as long as they meet the performance standards of their job with XYZ Co. All employees will be judged by the same performance standards and will be subject to XYZ Co.’s scheduling demands, regardless of any existing outside work requirements.
"If XYZ determines that an employee’s outside work interferes with performance or the ability to meet the requirements of XYZ Co. as they are modified from time to time, the employee may be asked to terminate the outside employment if he or she wishes to remain with XYZ Co.
"Outside employment that constitutes a conflict of interest is prohibited."
