Side-Hustle (4)

Que: Is there anything wrong with me having a side hustle that is in no way competing with my employer’s business?

Ans: It depends on what your contract says; some contracts expressly prohibit an employee from engaging in any other form of employment or business. Alternatively, your contract may provide that you are to dedicate your whole time and attention to your employer’s business, in which case, your side hustle could land you in trouble with your employer.

    What is the legal meaning for laying off casuals after working for every three weeks? They are paid daily but after three weeks they break for one week.Thank you

    1. Anne Babu says:

      The break in service is used to prevent casual employees from becoming entitled to the same terms and conditions of service as other employees. If a casual employee works for a continuous period of 2 months, he becomes entitled to the same terms and conditions of service as all the other employees.
