No downside and you can do that already.

You are absolutely and perfectly free to take 3 months off any time you like, provided you can afford to do so. 

 

Like every decision in life such a decision may have consequences, of course, but it isn't Upwork's job to protect us from the consequences of our own decisions.

Deleted - too personal. Though it had unicorns in it.

The question was of course made in context, here it is in case it was missed: 

What is the actual downside of having a leave option and not losing the perks? 

 

There was a rhetorical question made as a point, like wouldn’t it be nice to have a vacation and come back and everything is intact. 

 

So I was wondering, what’s the real-life basis for the attempt at irony in there.:) Does anyone have their stuff missing or something, after you go off work or on vacation? Money taken out from a bank account? Things just drop off your resume? If not, is that unfair to other people that you kept it? XD

 

If you find the the decision-consequence such an overwhelming idea, that it must end all thought movement and discussion, let me put it this way:

The consequence is you miss out on earnings. But that’s somehow not mentioned, because then a virtual setting would not seem as serious and real, as it’s made out to be.
