Dutch term or phrase:koopdag
A "koopdag" is a day that you can buy from your employer over and above the annual leave that you have. You buy the day for the salary that would normally be paid for a day. So it is basically unpaid leave, but you can "purchase" a certain number of these days from the employer. Any fixed term for this in English?
Explanation: Unpaid leave - I'm not aware of there being any direct equivalent of this, however it broadly corresponds to "unpaid leave" (i.e. non-designated leave) which is approved by the employer. You could include the original with an explanatory note.
