Free lance consulting alongside full time job


I'm currently employed full-time with a company.

Another company has offered me a consulting job to advise them and help out on a new project they are working on. Tentatively it will be a 1-2 month work which I can work on from my home & during my off days. This will not impact my existing commitment.


Can I accept this consulting offer without any legal implications from my existing employer?


I read about dual employment but I wasn't sure if this case would also be considered as dual employment as the second job is not a full time job but a part time consulting work.


Thanks for any guidance.

Read up the documents you have signed with your current employer. Usually it has clause that prohibits you from working elsewhere. Advocate Pooja Hegde R.

Usually it stated that employee shall not engage in any other venture.

You may go thru standing orders applicable to the establishment and extended to your designation/service and conduct rules or service codes and regulations/HR policy or whatever else it is termed in your establishment.


It is always better to avoid conflict on such matters and seek beforehand clearance.



If any other family member is doing it then there should not be any issue.
