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.
Yes this. Or budget drive as employees on garden leave come off the budget and go into the "restructuring reserve" pot etc. I think one has to realize this is almost never the case that the employer thinks "Let's fire Dude but let's be nice and give him a vacation" - have not come across such companies.
