Conflicts of Interest

Remote Working and Side Jobs: Aligning Policies to Practices 

Outside employment (also known as secondary employment) can create significant issues for both the employee and the employer, including potential conflicts of interest, low productivity, and theft or use of company assets or intellectual property. Companies should be asking: Are our remote employees working a second job? What impact does it have on our business? Are we losing valuable IP? These are all critical questions that you should ask as you consider the potential impact of outside employment on your business. 

Learn about best practices to confront these conflicts of interest and how to address the issues of outside employment.
