Customer Question
Currently have my own...

Currently have my own business and now will be working for a company. In the new hire packet there a form called outside employment activity application. The job is in California. Does this apply to businesses owned or only for employment at other companies?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Is the employment agreement "at will," union, full time or part time?

At will

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Full time, sorry

Kindly note that I just came across your post. I do not have control over the question list. I am just a site user just like you. Nonetheless, I apologize for the delay in response to your post.

Your Question:

Currently have my own business and now will be working for a company. In the new hire packet there a form called outside employment activity application. The job is in California. Does this apply to businesses owned or only for employment at other companies?

Response: Apply to businesses owned because that would fall under outside employment activity.

Best wishes,

By California law a company has the right to require permission to have an outside job or company? Also, I have an LLC due to land I inherited and rent out. Do I need permission from my company for the LLC?
