Q. We have an employee who recently started working a second job. We currently don’t have a rule against moonlighting, but now he frequently comes in late and tired. It’s really affecting his work. Are we legally entitled to ban second jobs?
A. Yes, but you should do it consistently for all employees (or at least for all employees who perform certain jobs or are at a certain level).
