Here to help you get gardening leave right
When your employee resigns, you can put them on gardening leave and stop them from coming to work.
You agree to pay your employee until their notice period ends. They’re still under contract with you and can’t work for anyone else during that time.
Paying your worker to sit out their notice period prevents them from taking your sensitive commercial information (and your clients) to a competitor.
But if you’re not careful, your gardening leave agreement may not be effective. And you could even end up breaking the law.
If you’re negotiating gardening leave or if a worker has broken their promise, contact Employers Direct today.
Our employment law experts give you FREE advice on how to set up gardening leave and write a watertight letter to tell your worker the rules that he or she has to follow. And we’ll help you crack down on rogue staff, too.
