1. A government employee unless and until he is terminated from his present job can not engage in any gainful employment with any other employer.

2. Leave without pay does not mean the termination of employment and during this time the employee very much remains the employee of the original employer and hence employment with another organisation would be treated as misconduct on which basis a disciplinary proceeding can be initiated agaisnt you and if found guilty you may be terminated for the job.

3. So just pray that your employment with the private firm is not proved. Else your job can not be saved.

All the best.

In India many people have or want to opt, to meet his daily expenses, for multiple jobs or dual employment.

Though there are plenty of labour enactments in India, everyone is silent about this issue of “dual employment” except the Factories Act, 1948. Section 60 of the said Act, says:

“60. Restriction on double employment.—No adult worker shall be required or allowed to work in any factory on any day on which he has already been working in any other factory, save in such circumstances as may be prescribed. “

Recently (2016), the Hon’ble Punjab & Haryana High Court has held that the termination of a driver who was working since 2001 to be valid, when it was found that the said driver was engaged in dual employment and salary slip and other documents to that effect were also produced before the Hon’ble Court. In another case, the Madras High Court in 2012 held that the termination to be valid when a Grade III operator was found to be engaged as a director of another company. In both the cases, the labour law advocates engaged on behalf of the employees argued but failed to establish their points.

However, each and every case while deciding the aspect of dual employment has to be deal individually and on factual aspects.
