Moonlighting - Can I work for 2 employers at once?

Outside of business hours in your own time for a few hours a week. Very casual.

Should this be disclosed to your current employer?

Check your employment contract and their policies.

As long the second employer business business have no conflict/ not a competitor with your first employer business, then I don't see a problem.

Big companies have rules for this. Search it up. Smaller companies, likely not. But if you said casual, is this a typical part-time job?

I went back to read the policy and it looks like I will be able to do it as long as its not a competitor and as long as its not on company time and on company premises/equipment. Thanks everyone.

@at1212b not your typical part time. A casual advisory role that will most likely have me read stuff, perform edits, and guide the next steps on a product launch.

If there's a conflict of interest it likely needs to be disclosed. If not, highly unlikely

To be safe, tell your manager. Do you due diligence and have it on record.
You never know at what point it becomes a conflict of interest.

Depends on your manager. Because some managers will pin in on you and say you're not focused at work or you seems tired etc.

Most will … shouldn’t day? Can you really work at night and function during the day ? He/she will immediately think your 2nd job is interfering with your day job, depending on your profession it will be a career limiting move Face With Stuck-out Tongue And Winking Eye

I would be surprised if your company policy doesn't already require you to self-disclose, and then they inform you, if it is a conflict of interest.

Like hypothetically, if I went and got a part time weekend job at Starbucks, I would still log on to my company website and modify my disclosure form to indicate as such. Wouldn't be a conflict of interest, but it's just good practice. Don't be like our Prime Minister "oh I didn't think it was a conflict of interest".

As long as it doesn't interfere and there are no conflict of interest .. yes you can do it. No need to disclose to management.
Please thank me if you find this helpful
