Happiest Minds layoffs employees for moonlighting.

Moonlighting is unacceptable as it amounts to a violation of the job contract and few employees found engaging in such practices have been fired over the past 6-12 months, said Happiest Minds Technologies, an IT company.

“We have been quite clear with our people that it is something we will not accept… because when you sign a contract or employment offer, you are agreeing to work only for that company,” Happiest Minds’ Executive Vice Chairman Joseph Anantharaju told PTI.

He was further asked whether the company had found instances of employees involved in moonlighting. “We have had a few and we immediately terminated them because it is a message you want to drive across the company. Even if it is a few hours somewhere… because there is no way of really ascertaining that. So we have done that,” said Anantharaju.

“We are clear, you can’t be moonlighting. If you want to do some voluntary activities in unrelated areas… maybe wish to go teach in a school over the weekend that is different. But for us you have to have all of your time dedicated to Happiest Minds and working out here,” he added.

He said that this is one of the reasons that the company has started getting its people back into office as the scope for a lot of these things is minimal and it can get eliminated and identified very earlier if the employees are involved in such activities, PTI reported.
