My employee works for another company as well, can that company demand my employment records?

Steve Duggan replies:

Each employee owes a duty of loyalty to the employer. However, these are two different employment situations. Therefore, each employer has a duty to protect the private employment information of its employee. That being said, each employer can require its employee to provide such information about other employment to ensure that the employee’s duty to it is being fulfilled.
