Will my company be upset if I moonlight as an Uber driver?

I have a full-time job, and company policy dictates that I have to dedicate my full attention to this job. Does this mean I can’t be an Uber Car driver in my spare time to make extra money? And if I do this, must I tell my employer?

Moonlighting, especially in tough economic times, is not uncommon, since many people are just trying to make ends meet, let alone get ahead.

But moonlighting is not an employee’s protected legal right. If your work performance slips as a result of your other activities, employers are within their legal rights to terminate you on the basis that your moonlighting is hurting performance, dependability and attentiveness.

In addition, employers may lawfully prohibit or severely limit moonlighting if your “day job” is safety- or production-sensitive or if response times to unscheduled work are critical, such as for law enforcement, emergency or medical personnel.

Employers may also impose noncompete provisions, which means you can’t moonlight for a competitor. As for whether to tell your employer, that’s a judgment call. It could be awkward to pick up your boss or colleagues from dinner one night — or find yourself the subject of a viral video, given how much attention Uber Car incidents get. However, it may help you get your next raise when your boss sees you have to do other work to help pay your bills.
