That was a very smart move. Financially, it’s the same for the company, but it’s not so for the employee. They might be able to find something else that could make money while on leave. As they can take it when they want, they might be able investigate opportunities ahead of time.

Emotionally it’s better also. It always helps to have some control.

Smart, smart, smart.
