Weekly off refers to designated days when employees are not required to work. These days, also known as rest days, vary according to organizational policies and the nature of the employee's work. They can either be consecutive days off, fixed days, or flexible, based on the work schedule. This approach ensures employees have a consistent and predictable time for rest and personal activities for a great work-life balance.
A typical work week usually spans 5 days, often from Monday to Friday, with the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) serving as the weekly off. However, this can vary in sectors like online businesses and manufacturing industries that operate 24/7. In such cases, employee schedules might include weekend work, with days off allocated during the traditional Monday to Friday workweek.
