why, oh why would he remove all the leaves??
sounds like the gardener is a total cowboy and might need reporting to your local authority, he's probably done it before to someone else, or will do similar things to someone else's garden.
if he's killed your plant by doing something so incredibly stupid you might be able to claim some sort of compensation!
here's hoping the plant is just getting its strength together before it sends out a new flush of leaves once its got over the shock!
