English term or phrase: half-days
XXX employed one part-time employee who worked half-days.

I cannot figure out the meaning of half-days. I think it doesn't have the same meaning as part time.

Media jornada
Explanation:
You could translate this sentence as:
"XXX contrató a tiempo parcial un empleado que trabajaba media jornada."
Here is a sample taken from reference #1:
"Respecto a las dedicaciones, se aprobó la exclusividad de la Alcaldía y se concedieron tres a tiempo parcial: media jornada al reponsable del área de Urbanismo, con una retribución de 150.000 pesetas al mes; y un cuarto de jornada para los delegados de Cultura, Medio Ambiente y Mujer, con 28.750 pesetas mensuales cada una."
Hope this helps!
