two fulltime jobs

if one were to take on two fulltime jobs but in two different industries and there is no conflict of interest, is it necessary/legally required to inform one or both employer?

Depends if you have an employment contract and what it says.

I doubt you'll be able to work both jobs, one employer will want your full effort/energy to be put towards their company, you can't do that if you're working two jobs. The employment contract should have some verbiage along those lines.

Yes if you are licensed in any professional organization like engineering for example, you are not allowed to moonlight. If not and you are able to fit them in your schedule and able to perform both jobs there is no written law that you have to inform an employer, unless it is written on your contract.

Would love to see a copy of this verbiage in your contract.

Used the wrong lingo but you know what I mean. Just curious what are some professional organizations that you know don't have any sort of ethics clause discouraging side jobs and being employed by more than 1 employer?

wife who is an RT, nothing in any of her contracts. I asked her about RN's, same. in fact many have 2nd full time jobs at another hospital entirely.

I don't see how you could pull this off. As an RN you couldn't balance two FT schedules, you can't choose which days you want your rotation to fall on. Working public service, the only scenario I could see where this would be a possibility would be a FT Firefighter working a 7 day rotation/month working 24hr shifts. That would leave 21+ days to balance another FT job.

Can't speak for RNs but RTs can plan their own schedule based on seniority.

I posted a few months ago a tiny bit of the wording. It is not from a contract, but clauses for full-timers.

and scroll down. Or read the whole thread,

The risk you take depends on the HR policies of your current employer.

If they have clear policies telling you that you have to inform them (about secondary employment), then you have to inform them.

If your employer does not have clear, published policies, you could always say "I didn't know". But you are still taking a risk.

Sure some have a clause about not working in a related field as a side gig. Also a clause about devoting your 'in office' time towards this business is normal as well.

Devoting all your time and effort? Don't make me laugh. I'd strike through and sign it and tell them it's either acceptable or I'll go somewhere else. Don't be afraid to negotiate if they want you bad enough.
