Moonlighting is not ‘ideal’, but can’t be termed as ‘cheating’: BT Poll

BT did a series of polls to understand the views of people on moonlighting in India. The majority of voters were against the practice of moonlighting as they felt that Indian companies must ban this practice – (Twitter – 51.7%, LinkedIn – 47%, Telegram – 73% and Instagram – 51%). But, the voters on YouTube had different views as a majority of the voters, that is 49% felt that companies should not ban moonlighting.

One of the YouTube voters commented, “People don’t understand the meaning of moonlighting, it is not only doing more than one work, that is ok, but also helping the rival companies and taking clients away from the company by giving them lucrative offers, how can this be my free choice”.

Back in August, Swiggy announced a ‘moonlighting’ policy for its delivery boys allowing them to take up a part-time job with another company while they are still employed with the online delivery company.

The policy of allowing the employees to do a part-time job after shift hours divided $130 Bn -dollar-plus Indian IT industry.

While Wipro’s Rishad Premji said moonlighting is “cheating, plain and simple”, Ex-Infosys director, Mohandas Pai came out in support of it as he said, “No, moonlighting is not cheating”.

The issue gained weight as Wipro went on to fire 300 employees for secretly moonlighting for its competitors.

This evoked multiple reactions from fellow IT employees and the general public.

BT Poll results

As part of the second set of polls, BT asked if moonlighting is cheating. A majority of the voters across platforms said, no it is not as ‘it is my free time and my choice’ (Twitter – 44%, Linkedin – 49%, YouTube – 56%)

Though, the voters on Instagram had a different opinion as 36% of them said it depends on their contract with the employer while only 29% said that it is their choice to do a part-time job during their free time.

Recently, Harpreet Singh Saluja, President of NITES, said “Moonlighting is not a new thing. Infosys founder Narayan Murthy was working with Patni Computer Systems when he founded Infosys. Flipkart was founded by Sachin and Binny Bansal while they were working for Amazon”.

What does the law say? 

Section 60 of the Factories Act, 1948, “prohibits the double employment of adult workers in factories. However, its provisions on double employment do not apply to organisations that don’t run factories”.

RPG Enterprises Chairman Harsh Goenka said Swiggy’s moonlighting policy applies to its delivery boys who can’t be compared to the IT employees who deal with high-level clients for whom “data secrecy is sacrosanct”.

‘Moonlighting’ is still a nouveau concept for Indian corporates and it will take some time for the firms to formulate clear guidelines on the same.

Amazonで買ったお気に入り製品がブラックフライデーで値下がりしてたので紹介します。そして今回買った4製品(CloseBox)

Amazonで買ったお気に入り製品がブラックフライデーで値下がりしてたので紹介します。そして今回買った4製品(CloseBox) Amazon恒例のブラックフライデーが始まりました。筆者は9月から11月にかけてiPhone 14やPixel 7やMeta Quest ProやStarlinkを買ってもうお腹いっぱいで鼓腹撃壌な感じなのですが、それでもこれを機にいくつか買ったので、それらを報告しておきましょう。 microSDやHDD、SSDなどストレージがお買い得:Amazonブラックフライデー セール情報 今回のセールの目玉商品は、テクノエッジでもいくつかまとめているのでまずはそちらをご覧ください。 関連記事:Amazon Black Friday 2022 孫娘のためのロボット掃除機 11月に、ロボット掃除機を買いました。孫娘が生まれたから何か買ってあげるよと伝えていた息子から、「ロボット掃除機がいい」という話を聞き、それに合う製品を選んで購入したのです。条件は、タワー型で段差を越えられるやつということだったので、先日発表会に行って実物を見てきた、アンカーの「Eufy RoboVac L35 Hybrid+」という製品を提案して、これがいいということになりました。定価は69,990円。これに18,000円のクーポン適用で51,990円となりました。 それが今回のブラックフライデーでは44,990円と、7,000円も安くなっています。 関連記事:Ankerの充電器やモバイルバッテリーがお買い得価格に:Amazonブラックフライデー セール情報 Amazonで売っている商品の価格推移をトラッキングするKeepaというブラウザプラグインがありますが、これで見ても底値だということがわかります。 ▲Keepaのトラッキングで見ても安い 注意しなければならないのは、筆者が購入したときのような、クーポンはこの価格推移に反映されないこと。見かけの価格とクーポン適用後の価格が食い違うため、この数値や割引率だけを見ても見誤る場合があるという点です。Keepa対策のためにクーポンを多用する販売会社が増えているという指摘もあります。 ともあれ、僕と妻からの孫娘への贈り物ということで、息子一家では「きよし」という名前がつけられて(なぜか氷川きよしから)、愛用されているそうです。 ▲「きよし」と名付けられたAnkerのロボット掃除機が孫と両親を笑顔に そのおかげか、お食い初めで見た、ロボット掃除機に守られた孫ちゃんの笑顔は格別なものでした。 QoL爆上がりなエスプレッソマシン もう一つ、今回のAmazonブラックフライデーでお得と思われる商品を紹介しましょう。デロンギの全自動エスプレッソマシン「マグニフィカS」です。51,800円で売られています。このジャンルの製品としてはエントリーモデルに相当しますが、筆者は3カ月ほど使っており、その間ほぼ毎日数杯のエスプレッソを愉しんでいます。 エントリーマシンということで、液晶画面などはついておらず、スイッチを組み合わせて操作するのですが、覚えてしまえば楽なもの。メンテナンスも、数日に1回、水を取り替えて、使ったコーヒー粉を捨てるだけ。ほぼメンテナンスフリーと言っていいかと思います。 ...
