plus days

After a few searches I found that "hengetimer" (which gets very few hits) was also referred to as "plusstimer" or "plussdager". So I tried a few searches and found the term "plus days" in the translation of the agreement between NHO/OLF and LO (overenskomst): "Plussdager-
Arbeidede dager i friperiode som ikke kompenseres med overtid.". Not sure how official this translation is but it's worth checking out.

Example sentence(s):
  • Plus days. Days worked during a free period that are not compensated with overtime
