Amid the brouhaha about moonlight in India, Cloud Major IBM made it clear on Wednesday that the practice is not ethical and that the company does not promote such behavior in the workplace.



Sandip Patel, chief executive of IBM India, said the company’s position is exactly that of the general industry in the country.

“All of our employees, when they are hired, sign an agreement that they will work full-time for IBM, so it’s not ethically right to work by moonlight,” he told reporters here.

“That is our position now and you have already heard the position of the sector,” he added.

Moonlighting allows employees to work outside their primary working hours.

Some startups and unicorns like swiggy have encouraged the practice, while most traditional companies call it a hoax.

infosys has warned employees about undeclared work and says involvement in such practices could lead to “disciplinary action, including termination of employment”.

“No double timing, no moonlight,” the company said in an internal memo, adding that it “strongly discourages double employment.”

Wipro chairman Azim Premjic recently said the concept of a second job in addition to the regular job is “just and simple” a hoax.

“There’s a lot of talk about people making extra money in the tech industry. This is cheating — plain and simple,” he emphasized.
