Working on a bid for a new job (workshop) and the customer wants to have 2 20A duplex outlets, each on a differnet branch circuit in each 2 Gang box.

Is this allowable by code? Since the boxes are steel and using EMT conduit would 2 seperate gounds need to be run and connected to each box and duplex outlet or is one sufficient...or....?

Thanks.
