A friend of mine is working in a company A on a full time position. He has been given an offer from a small company B for a full time position working from home and has accepted it. However he wants to continue working for A part time (on Saturdays) for whatever reason.
The contract with B says that an employee should not engage with any other employment or activity without consent from B, which I pointed out to him. Now he wants to go and ask B if he may do so or not. Both A and B are not direct competitors, however share common industry and technologies to some extent - the way I see it.
While I understand that he may ask B about part time with A. I have a feeling that this may be looked at as not a good thing in the new company. What do you think?
