If a registered representative wants to obtain employment outside of their position, with a member firm, the registered representative must first obtain the employing member’s prior approval. Exceptions to this rule are if the registered representative is a passive investor in a business or if the representative owns rental property. All other outside business activities must be disclosed and require prior approval of the member firm.
