French term or phrase: congés sans motivation au préalable
Section on "congés mobiles" in an employee handbook.

"L'employé pourra bénéficier de 3 jours de congé rémunérés par année, en sus de ses vacances annuelles. Ces congés peuvent aussi bien servir de congés pour obligations personnelles que de ***congés sans motivation au préalable***."

Would this be "unplanned leave"?

leave (days) granted without prior motive/motivation


Explanation:
These floating holidays (congés mobiles) may act/serve as leave days, i.e; their function and purpose. They may be given without prior motive or motivation (i.e; personal reasons, rationale and consideration).

"A floating holiday allows an employee to take any day off, for any reason, when he or she needs the day".

https://www.thebalancecareers.com/should-your-company-offer-...

The employee does not have to state the specific reasons for taking his/her days off.

Without providing any explanation to the employer.

neutral  Francois Boye: This is common practice in the US. BUT you must provide an explanation because there is a distinction between holiday leave and sickness leave.

neutral  B D Finch: Your suggested term "motive/motivation" is a faux ami. However, your explanation is right.
