Infosys co-founder Kris Gopalakrishnan spoke on moonlighting.
Said – It would be appropriate to look at it from the perspective of the contract between the employee and the employer.
There should be a clear conversation between the employer and the employee in the beginning itself.
New Delhi. People’s lifestyle and work culture have changed a lot since Kovid-19. While doing work from home, the genie of moonlighting also came out, which gained a lot of buzz in the IT industry. Most of the big IT companies have been against moonlighting and have been calling it cheating on the company by the employee. Now Infosys co-founder Kris Gopalakrishnan has spoken on this issue.
Talking to Business Today, Kris Gopalakrishnan said that it would be appropriate to look at the issue from the perspective of the employee and the employer’s contract. He said, “It is an issue of contracts and trying to make sure that people follow the contracts.”

This is one way to solve this issue
According to him, one way to solve this issue is to have a clear dialogue between the employer and the employee at the very beginning. “You take up a permanent employment with an employer, and you must work full-time with that employer. It’s a simple matter. Now if you want to work part-time, you need to take part-time work, and you must disclose, explain, and be accepted by your employer. So, essentially, we are looking at a different type of employment relationship.
Gopalakrishnan says, many unrelated things get mixed up while discussing moonlighting. Gopalakrishnan agrees that there is now greater clarity on the issue within the IT sector, compared to earlier.

Optimistic on the future of IT sector
Kris Gopalakrishnan also talked about the future of the IT sector. He said, “I can say that in the near term I am very optimistic about the IT sector. For example, during Kovid, there has been an unprecedented increase in the use of digital technology, both in business and in our lives. And this has impacted positively, in terms of services provided in India and from India.”
