Norwegian term or phrase: inneklemt fridag
The text is a set of general rules and regulations between employer and employees - among other things confidentiality, pensions and insurance, and, of course, working hours, overtime etc.

Apart from the basic working week, there may be overtime in the busy season, and if this adds up to more than a certain amount, gis det anledning til avspasering i forbindelse med jule og påskehøytiden samt i *inneklemte fridager*.

I would call these mid-week holidays, but would be grateful for any better suggestions!

holiday bridge day
Explanation:
"... in many nations, when a lone holiday occurs on a Tuesday or a Thursday, the gap between that day and the weekend may also be designated as a holiday, or set to be a movable or floating holiday, or indeed work/school may be avoided by consensus unofficially. This is typically referred to by a phrase involving "bridge" in most languages."

My understanding of this is a day off (time in-lieu) that's tagged onto another public holiday.
