My employer wants to keep me out of the office to protect a

Customer Question

My employer wants to keep me out of the office but they fear (wrongly) they will face a whistleblowing claim. My gardening leave clause says company has right to keep me at home on full pay at any time and not just by ending employment and offering notice. They will tell me to go home and not work on full pay with no notice to protect themselves from their fear will go to the tribunal for them ending my employment for whistleblowing - instead they will just keep me away at home on full pay for a few months, then fire me when there will be too long a period to link whistleblowing to the dismissal. Views? is such a use of a gardening leave clause with no notice enforceable?
