What legal action can an employer take against the employee who used the company laptop to work on a freelancing project? Duration maybe max of 10 days.

Possibility of allegation from employer is for using the company's asset (laptop).

If a full time employee works part time to another company in IT industry serving different domains, will that amount to dual employment in India?

Note: The freelancing project was just initiated as a sample project and no commitments have been made and the same wasn't being invoiced to the company who offered the work.

    Was there an actual contract? did the freelance work occur during normal work hours, or detract from the employee's work output and performance? Was there a company policy against use of the laptop for non-company purposes, and if so was it communicated to the employee? Apr 17 at 14:11

    Hi @DavidSiegel - There was no contract for freelancing work. Freelancing work was done after business hours and there was no distraction in employee's performance. As per company policy it is a violation and already employee is being interrogated. Apr 18 at 4:29
