Given that one is contractually bound by a non-moonlighting clause, is it a possible loop-hole to provide expertise via a proxy?
If my previous employer wishes to procure my expertise and perhaps perform work.
Could I suggest they hire another person (a relative or friend) who need not necessarily have any experience in the field. I "advise" that person over casual conversation at home who then gets paid.
I would like to understand it that I am not employed, therefore I am not moon-lighting. But I would welcome more knowledgeable opinions.
I am not suggesting that I break the law or breach contract. Should I be approached I would like to know what my legal options are.
Thank you everyone for understanding my very hypothetical question. I do not intend to do such a thing. I don't even want to do this work anymore. I guess it was more out of interest.
Thank you for participating in a civil discussion. Which is rare in the internet :)
