Due to remote employment, some Indian computer specialists have been able to work two jobs or start side businesses; however, some firms are not happy about it.

Diya, a 32-year-old Bangalore-based software developer, logs in remotely every day to work an eight-hour shift. She works very hard at her job, but when the day is over, she logs on to her second job, which is also in IT, to maintain her professionalism. Diya is a great animator, and she’s presently working on a project that pays almost as much and takes less time than her regular job. It also gives her the chance to develop her skills and increase her income. Diya holds a full-time job in addition to marketing her skills to a different business. Because she must put in roughly 40 hours per week for her employer, and as long as she does so honestly, she sees no reason why she shouldn’t also have a side business. Moonlighting is unethical, according to Rishad Premji, head of the Indian IT and consulting firm Wipro.

In certain instances, if all parties agree, it could be fair for a worker to take on a second job. If an employee is delivering great work and there are no conflicts of interest or privacy violations, the company shouldn’t object to them running a side business.
