side jobs outside of normal employement

Our co. employee manual states that we are not allowed to do any side line work or jobs while in permanent employment, this includes weekends. This this correct. Why do they have to know what we do in our private time. It does not affect normal working hours or has anything to do with the company. Is this legal? Why knock someone for trying to provide for their family?

Hi. I think that they probably feel that if you work after hours and on weekends you won''t be able do your job properly as you''ll eventually become exhausted and have ''burn out''. Everyone needs to take time out to relax otherwise we''ll battle to cope.
