Making money outside our workplace
So many of us in different professions are involved in activities outside our workplace. We coach our kids' sports teams, teach Sunday school, maybe even run small dog walking businesses. Most businesses don't have policies about what outside activities we can be involved in. Should they? Should our boss care if we are a teacher and making money at night as a cocktail waitress? Journalism has standards about our outside involvement for good reason. We can and should be objective when reporting the news. But should these rules apply in other professions as well. How much control should an employer have over our outside lives or our other sources of income? I think an employer should be aware if we are making money from other activities. I would rather my employer know and give his approval than learn later and make an issue of it. What do you think?
