In general, federal employees may not engage in outside employment or activities that conflict with official duties and responsibilities.

An activity conflicts with official duties:
• if it is prohibited by statute or by the regulations of the employee’s agency; or
• if the activity would require the employee to be disqualified from matters so central to the performance of the employee’s official duties as to materially impair the employee’s ability to carry out those duties.

But many federal agencies have written policies that allow outside employment, especially when it is not related to the federal work and will not result in, or create the appearance of, a conflict of interest.

Agency policies may require employees to receive prior approval for outside employment even when co-workers have similar outside jobs. Ask your supervisor, agency ethics official, and agency personnel office for further information.
