California Employment Lawyer: legalg, Other replied 6 months ago

Being that the employment relationship is contractual, it would depend on the circumstances of the particular contract.

For example, the parties are free to make contractucal provisions so long as they do not violate any statutes or codes. Since there is no statute that precludes an individual from working 2 jobs, it is not illegal to do so (illegal conduct can void a contract, for example).

However, if the contract between the employer and employee (and this can include policy manuals and other documents, not just a signed "employment contract") restricts additional employment then that may be grounds for termination.

Since most employment relationships are "at will" (ie either party can terminate, for any reason so long as not illegal, without notice) the employer could legally terminate the relationship based on outside employment even if it was not contractually forbidden.
