Can an employer stop you from taking a second job?

Can an employer stop you from taking a second job?

Your employer can’t simply bar you from taking a second job if there’s nothing in your contract that stops it and there isn’t any obvious problems with your performance. Some employers may be OK with you doing the same kind of work for other companies, but it’s best to get this in writing.

What is the tax rate if you have a second job?

35%

What happens if you claim tax free threshold on 2 jobs?

If you have more than one job and your combined income exceeds $18,200, you can only claim the tax-free threshold for one of those jobs (normally the higher paying one). If you claim for both jobs, not enough tax will be deducted and you will have a tax debt at the end of the year, when you lodge your tax return.
