Employee doing personal work during work time

Q: I work in a canteen. I sell whatever the owner brings. Can I sell few things like biscuits that I buy from my money and sell it without letting them know to increase my income.

A: It is not permissible for you to do your own business in the time they have employed you.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
