Moonlighting trend increased in Kovid-19
There has been a culture of moonlighting in western countries for a long time. However, its craze increased during the Kovid-19 epidemic in India when employees were allowed to work from remote locations as well. Companies in many sectors, including information technology, got information that their employees were working with other companies on other projects at the same time.
Companies say that this will affect productivity. Not only this, there will be a conflict of interest and even the problem of data breach may also come to the fore.
