“Requesting a Shorter Garden Leave”
Employees seeking to resign and move on to better opportunities in their careers are often faced with a stumbling block: a “Garden Leave” obligation that requires they remain with their present employer for 30, 60, 90 or more days.
While few employees in this circumstance seek to negotiate to reduce the length of their Garden Leave restriction, more and more employees are doing just that. While success is never guaranteed, one thing is for certain: if you don’t try, you will not succeed.
