There is no minimum term or contract involved.
I remember a close friend of mine said he had to name his dad as the directory of "his" company because he's not allowed to have his own business as he's got a job in the public sector. As you can see, there are ways round it but if you want to be completely sure, then your contract of employment should state a clause along those lines. I'd go with the contract you signed when you took up the job if I were you because then you'd have a leg to stand on.
If you are asking for Mauritius, then be aware that you can have a business in your name as long as it is not hindering the job that the government allotted to you. You are paid to work for the government. You may have business but registered and pay taxes. For more info contact the civil service.
