Moonlighting refers to the practice of working a second job outside normal business hours. Therefore, an employee may work a normal 9-to-5 job as a primary source of income but work nights at a different job in order to earn extra money. Employees who work for private businesses may be subject to any policies the company has in place regarding moonlighting. Certain organizations may not want employees to work additional jobs while others will not care. Employees for public organizations may need to check with any agency regulations or federal laws concerning having two jobs. One example would be the fact that employees of federal government agencies are prohibited from receiving two sources of income that both come from the federal government.
