Putting an employee on garden leave is rarely an act of altruistic generosity on the part of the employer.

Itís more often a risk management decision to reduce workplace tension, remove access to business critical systems, or client data, external contacts, or risk of revenge acts.

Employees during their notice period are also entitled to reasonable time off for interviews.

That said, most departing employees benefit more from garden leave, than being asked to work fully to their end date.
Who cares whether it is 'altruistic' or not, the end result is the same; you get paid for doing nothing.
