Dive In


No two-timing — no moonlighting!

That’s what Infosys told its employees in a stern letter—warning them not to take on side hustles. Any violation will trigger disciplinary action “which could even lead to termination of employment.” The issue of moonlighting on the job—i.e taking a second gig on the sly—has been a hot topic of debate in the tech industry. Wipro Chairman Rishad Premji recently called it “cheating.” Employee unions have called the letter “unethical,” insisting “what the employees do outside working hours is their prerogative.”
