Re: Handing your notice in after the notice period

I've known quite a few people to get "gardening leave" when there is a "mutual decision" to terminate the contract, with the condition that if they start work, the gardening leave payments cease.

The employer can prevent you working for anyone else, I believe, but it'd be difficult to insist you come into work, as the stress that would cause you would mean you'd just be signed of sick! ( And most sensible companies don't want disgruntled employees on their premises! )
