Post Covid-19 situation profoundly impacted how people were engaged with their organization and its quality of work. It impacted the working mode, viz., work from home, flexible hours, and hybrid working for skilled workers and executives. More tech workers in India have started moonlighting despite the disapproval of their employers and managers. The concept of employee loyalty, value system and ethics has undergone changes and they have reassured themselves with the western model of employment where such moonlighting became an acceptable industry norm. An ethical dilemma arises in the mind of the employers when their full-time professionals and employees started moonlighting in the same industry and at the cost of the companies resources and time. It is considered unethical and a case of loss of confidence which may attract penal action. The present study provides a valuable understanding about the concept of moonlighting and multiple job-holding and its changing dimensions in the Indian IT industry.
