Moonlighting becomes one of the most discussed topics during the pandemic when the work from culture began to spread across the companies. While food delivery platform Swiggy allowed its workers to take up any other works after the working hours, some other companies opposed the moonlighting policy. Out of these, the statement from Wipro chairman Rishad Premji about moonlighting policy got into spotlight. He said hat, "There is a lot of chatter about people moonlighting in the tech industry. This is cheating, plain and simple."
