Hi all,

Many people initially stay in their employment, while starting off their small business. I would be interested in finding out how you have convinced your employer in approving your ‘secondary employment’ (SME) or if you have just kept it quiet?
Have you had any issues with this and if so, how have you negotiated with your employer to run your SME on the side?

Thank you for your responses!

Hi Krisl

Can we ask for some context? are you currently going through this? Does your employment contract state you can not or does it say you need to seek approval?

What is the basis of you thinking you need to seek approval and what industry is it?

Am with Rowan on this though, if its not conflict of interest or similar – it should be ok.. But if its poaching clients, working same field and the lines can be crossed.. well…. ethically, irrespective of legally, it should go without saying.

More info would be advised as to why you are pondering this..

Cheers
