Today I wanted to ask your selves about a dilemma I am currently in. I am working as a full time web developer for a company in the UK but I currently have my own business I am running in my own time (at home).
Is what I am doing wrong? Should I not be doing this? From my employers point of view, is what I am doing something that breaches his morals/rules?
I have always wanted to start my own company and one day I wish to leave my current job and work full time for my own company (as the director/developer).
The business I am working on my spare time is also a Web development/hosting business.
At the moment, my employer is not aware of my side business. The business has been around for 1 year or so but is not yet registered. I am aware that once I do register the company, my employer could pottentially search my name and see I have registered a company. Assuming he does see this, what are my defences? How best should I handle him when/if he approaches me about it.
I am not stealing any customers/projects and I do not plan on doing so in the future.
I do not do anything in my business that could harm this company in any way or form.
I am still 100% dedicated towards the companies jobs when I am in the office during working hours.
Let me know If you need additional information from me.
