What are Days Off and Paid Leave?

Days off include both paid and unpaid time away from work. Paid leave means you get your regular pay even when you’re not working, covering various types like vacation, sick leave, parental leave, and public holidays. It’s a perk provided by employers, and the terms differ between companies and countries. Days off also include unpaid time off, such as unpaid vacation or personal days.
