Can I get fired because of my side hustle? How to side hustle and not get fired. You’ve probably typed that into Google a few times.
Side hustling is great for a few reasons; it gives you a taste of what it’s like to start and grow a business, it helps you figure out if your idea is marketable, and is a great outlet to fuel your passion.
But, is it legal? It depends.
In this episode, I discuss some things to consider when starting and carrying on your side hustle while still employed. Some things to consider:
- Can your employer fire you for having a side hustle?
- Can your employer claim ownership to your side hustle?
- Is your side hustle related to or competitive with your current job?
- Should you tell your boss about your side hustle? and
- What obligations do you have under a contract or non-compete?
Listen to the full episode to get tips to make sure you protect your side hustle from a claim from your employer.
