A number of employees are being placed on garden leave and do not know what to expect during this period. You can be put on garden leave up to and including your termination date.  If you are an employee, your employer may require you to sign a compromise agreement whilst on garden leave. This means that you would not be required to attend work or undertake any work.  For instance, an employee will:

  •  remain an employee of the employer until the termination date;
  • continue to receive normal salary and contractual benefits (less usual deductions for tax and National Insurance contributions);
  • be required to take any outstanding holidays;
  • not contact any customers, suppliers or business contacts of its employer or an Associated Company, or undertake any work on behalf of its employer or any Associated Company without the prior consent of, the employer;
  • not undertake work either on a self-employed basis or for any other company, firm, business entity or other organisation;
  •  not contact the press or other media or make any statement regarding the employer or any Associated Company; 
  • maintain obligations of good faith, fidelity and confidentiality.

The employer may:-

  •  require the employee to carry out duties other than the employee’s normal duties ;
  • in  its absolute discretion, appoint another person to carry out some or all of the employee’s duties.
