Being told by employer can't use my license on the side

    Sounds like your company happens to NEED you and your license at the moment. My suggestion is to use that as a bargaining chip. Go find another job and tell them you are going to leave, when they say they want to keep you have them put into writing that you are allowed to moonlight as long as it doesn't effect your current job.

    They have no legal right to keep you from working on the side, just like you have no legal right to be employed by the company. So you have to follow company policies unless you get them to exempt you from the policy, in writing.

    Good luck!

      Keep in mind that trying to "bargain" can backfire and the employer may very well not take too kindly to being told by an employee that they will only perform the duties they wish to perform. Even if it works in this instance, it isn't going to make for an improved working relationship.
      I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
