    Can an employee join another company while working in the present company?

    One of the employees has joined another organization without any notice. He had taken 15 days holiday and joined another company. Now he has come back as he did like work over there. However we have come to know about this. What should we do in such case? Is it a good practice to joining new company without any intimation to the previous company? Please suggest.

    See the employee played very smartly with your company as he took leaves which was approved.
    And during the leaves he joined another comapny to test the working conditions there.
    Now if you can get some material proofs about his joining the other company, than you can confront him .

    If you just ask him , he will say, he had not joined any other company during the leave

    You can contact the HR team of the company he had joined and tell them about the situation and seek their co-operation
    If they give you all the details than you can confront the employee and ask him to leave your company
    Beacause this employee can leave your company any day he gets better oppotunities

    Hello dear, first of all yes an employee can join another company while working in the present company.But before joining the new company there are some things you should do for the proper growth of your career.

    First you should give notice to your present company about the job change.Before you serve the notice to your present company, make sure that you know enough about the new company's work culture, rules.

    Do not commit to join the new company unless you have served the notice period at your present company. This would also help you to maintain a healthy relationship with your present company and at the same time your new company would also be assured about your sense of responsibility.

    Do not join a company thinking that you are going to stay there only for a short period. This mindset may hamper your performance and reputation.

    Dear sir,

    It is not a good practice to join another company without giving prior notice to the previous company.

    However since the employee applied leave for 15 days,his resignation can be accepted from the date after his leave is over.

    Because the employee has decided to leave your company & to work in the next company,it will be better to let him leave your company peacefully.

    You may get a explanation from the concerned employee for going on leave & joining another company meanwhile before issuing the resignation acceptance letter from your end so that he/she can learn some lesson.


    Thanks.

    Dear questioner a contracttual or permanent company employee during the time enjoying public holiday on behalf of present company can never get the privilege to join new company without serving notice is very ir-regular and present company can claim 3 months salary as he did not serve notice to the present company.

    Being a pvt employee he should have knowledge as per his experience a gap of permanent employee can effect negative result until the company arrange a skilled permanent employee to his place.so present company can charge 3 months salary before approving resignation letter and issuing experience letter.

    Thank you,

    Hi. I certainly think you should take some action against the abovesaid employee so that he doesnt repeat the same thing again in future. No this is certainly not right to join another company without intimating the present one. He certainly is in the wrong and should be dealt with. He has certainly been tactful and taken undue advantage of your comapny.

    You should try to accumulate as much proof as possible against him and then speak to him face to face. Tell him he could lose his job after doing such a thing. Give him a warning so he doesnt repeat the same thing again. Show him that you are doing him a favour by letting him retain his job and not throwing him out. Be strict with him. He will surely realise his mistake and not repeat it in future.

    Best of luck. Thanks

    Hello

    Its a crime and violation of rules. You can work with one company at a time any alternate source of income is considered as black money.

    If you want to work outside it should be with the permission of the higher authorities of your current job. Or atleast they should be told about this.

    You can inform this to any of your higher authority if you have any proof.some legal actions should be taken against him

    Thank you

    Hi Friend,
    It is organisational policy violation. If employee is working with a company unless he resigns from the company he should not accept offer with other company or perform any part time or full time duty there.
    As you have come to know this employer needs to terminate his job and send him a legal notice for this crime.

    This is a offence as it is against company's policy. Such type of employees should not be entertained as it can put the company in bad light.

    and through the leaves he joined another company to check the operating conditions there.
    currently if you'll get some material proofs concerning his connexion the opposite company, than you'll confront him .

    you'll contact the time unit team of the corporate he had joined and tell them concerning matters and ask for their co-operation
    If they offer you all the small print than you'll confront the worker and raise him to depart your company

    Dear asker,
    That type of persons not at all loyal. After all it is not better practice to join in other company. After you came to know about him just wait for some more days.
    In the mean time get another resource and fire that dishonest person. Because if he came across better opportunity he will leave any way at any cost.

    Regards,

    Re: Can an employee join another company while working in the present company?

    Hi.. your employee should have certainly intimated you before he applied for a job in the other company..Even he did not tell he certainly shouldn't have come back..This is certainly wrong practice on the part of the employees as the company spends so much of their resources to employ them and then they leave without any intimation not to even leave you with enough time so as to employ a new person in your place..

    If they have to find a new job they should follow the proper procedure and intimate you beforehand and serve their notice period before resigning..THey should follow the company's policies properly and if they dont they should certainly be punished..

    So you should call the employee to your office and tell him that you have found what he has done and want a proper explanation..Then if he accepts give him one more chance but ask him to pay the compensation..And if he doesnt terminate his services immediately because such employees certainly dont desrve a second chance who dont accept their mistakes..

    Good luck..Happy Diwali.. Thanks

    If one is working for a company, he must be dedicated to do that job for that company. He must not do sometthing like that.

    If in such cases, it is not good that he continues with the current company. Please make your boss know about this.

    Hello friend,
    its illegal to work in other company while you are in one company.you should take the proper procedure give the resignation leave the job and join other company.every company signs a bond from the employee that during his tenure in the company he cant take up any other job so any violation legal action will be taken against him.
    apart from that all clearances like provident fund,experience certificate wont be provided him if he does not serve the notice period.
    so you can take legal action or any action as per your company policy against the employee.
    thank You.

    Well that's not at all acceptable in India. I think there is law that says, you can work in any one company at a time. In case, one joins some other company, he/she must leave the previous company officially. But you are allowed to do business alongside doing a job in a company.
