Spending time with plants

£130k for doing nowt.

"BBC employees are only put on ‘garden leave’ in exceptional cases, and all cases are subject to the prior approval of the BBC’s Senior Management Remuneration Committee (“SMRC”). Even if approved, an employee may not be put on garden leave if the matter is resolved in a different way. 

"For the financial year 2015/2016, the BBC’s Reward Department recorded five cases where SMRC approved garden leave, two of which were senior managers. The total amount of salary paid during garden leave for those five employees was £130,939.93. 

"In these cases, by ‘garden leave’ we mean that the employee remained employed for their notice period but would be at home and not working; this might be warranted for a number of reasons, for example, the employee’s post may have been closed and there was no suitable work for them, or the employee may have been unwell."
