Infosys has allowed employees to take up “gig” jobs on the side with prior consent of managers provided such an engagement does not compete with the company, its clients or pose conflict of interest.

The company, in an internal communication to employees, detailed how staff can take up “gig” work.

Analysts say the move may help the company to address some attrition challenges, since it allows employees to take up additional source of earnings, and chase their tech passion, albeit with firm riders. It, however, did not define “gig” work nor did it term it as “moonlighting”.

The latest move comes at a time debate around moonlighting has grabbed headlines. Put simply, moonlighting refers to employees taking up side gigs to work on more than one job at a time.

During the company’s Q2 earnings, Infosys had made it clear that the company does not support moonlighting and that it has fired employees who were into dual employment over the last 12 months.

In an email to employees on Thursday, Infosys said: “Any employee, who wishes to take up gig work, may do so, with the prior consent of their manager and BP-HR, and in their personal time, for establishments that do not compete with Infosys or Infosys’s clients.”
