Mumbai September 22 : There are many people who work in IT companies. Bonuses, holidays, accompanying discounts and gifts have always been the center of attraction for people working in IT. Many people dream of working in big IT companies like Wipro, Tata, Infosys. But people don’t know some rules in this company, due to which they have to face problems. Currently, the case in Wipro IT company is in discussion. Many employees were fired from the company, which created a sense of fear among people in all IT companies. Have you ever heard the term moonlighting? If not, let’s find out about it first. Moonlighting means that after the company’s fixed working hours, an employee can do other work, such as freelancing, and is free to do this work. But even so there are many IT companies who oppose this and write about it in their offer letter as well. But many people do not know about this. Actually there are two different classes in IT. While some companies don’t mind moonlighting, for others it is a fraud, which can even lead to the loss of employees’ jobs.

Let’s know which company gives its employee what leave

A professional website provided information regarding appointment letters issued by leading companies in this regard. He has told about such companies, which have supported moonlighting in the ‘job contract’ or not.


It is clearly written in Wipro’s offer letter that the employees have to work only for the company. For any other work the employee will have to take the permission of the Business Unit Head.
