If an employee works two jobs, are they really stealing from your company?
I don’t think so, but Canopy CEO Davis Bell apparently does.
Bell, whose company is a midsized, Utah-based accounting practice management software firm, wrote on LinkedIn that he’d recently “fired two recent hire engineers who never quit their last job at a big tech company. The reason? This is not about side hustles or moonlighting. These were people holding down two, full-time synchronous jobs and lying about it — trying to be in two meetings at once, etc. Their early performance was really bad, and fortunately, we have great managers who sniffed them out very quickly.”
