Contacting a 2nd employer

Hi, we have an employee who was off sick with a leg problem which he is awaiting an operation.

OH is involved and has recommended light duties (manual work) be applied, which we have supported for the past 12 months. But this is now becoming a real problem to support.

We know that the employee has a 2nd job (same responsibilities) and believe that he is not on light duties and undertaking work that he is unable to do for us (due to the light duties).

We would like to contact his 2nd job manager to ask what tasks are being carried out, to find out if he is currently undertaking work with them that he is unable to with us but unsure as to our position with this - are we allowed to contact a 2nd employer to ask for this information?
thank you.

I don't see why you shouldn't contact the other employer, not I am
Not sure it will really help
