What does it mean to be on garden or gardening leave?

Your compromise agreement may include a period of garden leave. This refers to a period of time in which your presence will not be required in the office, but you are still legally employed by your employer.

When is garden leave or gardening leave used?

Garden leave is used by employers to ensure that confidential information and/or documents are kept private, and any issues relating to the business are unknown by you during this period.

Whilst on garden leave, you are still employed by the company, and therefore remain on the payroll and are entitled to your salary. However, this also means that you remain under the authority of your employer, and therefore if you wish to go abroad, you must apply for holiday allowance through your employer, and until agreed, you cannot legally go on holiday.
