I'm not sure if I am permitted to perform outside consulting under my employment agreement?
You should confer with your employment contract to confirm that you are permitted to consult through ExpertConnect Asia. You are solely responsible for determining whether you are permitted to consult given your employment circumstances, as well as the information you provide during any projects.
If I'm asked about customers or suppliers of the company I work for, can I discuss them?
It depends on the circumstances. As a general matter, you may speak about a company that is a customer or supplier of your employer, provided that you and your company have no confidentiality agreement with that customer or supplier and you do not disclose any information given to your company in confidence. However, you may not discuss your employer or confidential information concerning its relationship with the customer or supplier, such as your employer's purchases from a supplier or orders from a customer. To be safe, if you are unsure whether information is confidential or otherwise restricted, you may not disclose it.
May I discuss the details of my client consultations and interviews/surveys with others?
No. Your consultations with ExpertConnect Asia's Clients – and any information you receive in connection with a consultation or an invitation to consult – are strictly confidential. You may not disclose a Client's identity, the subjects discussed, or any information or materials provided to you by a Client. Likewise, you should not share information concerning any surveys that you are provided by ExpertConnect Asia.
What should I do if I'm invited for a consultation that directly concerns my current employer?
Please carefully check your employment contract with your current employer. About anything prohibited contractually, you should decline the invitation, notify ExpertConnect Asia of the reason, and update your biographical information if necessary to ensure our records are accurate and up to date. ExpertConnect Asia's Terms & Conditions categorically prohibit Experts from consulting about their current employers.
