He took Monday off.
He is on annual leave.
I'm taking a few days off next week, the kids are off school.
Why don't you take a day of sick leave?
I'm asking for a three-day personal leave, because my wife is giving birth.
You may have one month of paid-holiday every year.
比如："take Tuesday off"就是“星期二请假”，那"take three days off"就是“请三天假”
be on annual leave
I'm on my annual leave, call me if you need me.
I will give you one-month of paid holiday and you can have enough time to think about it. You need relax.
A: Have you finished going through the contract?
B: Yes, but I have a few questions for you.
A: Okay, ask anyway.
B: First, I'd like to know if you offer employees sick leave?
A: Employees can take up to 10 days of sick leave per year. However, in order to get paid, you will have to bring in a note from the doctors.
B: Even if I'm only sick for one day?
A: That's correct.
B: That's pretty strict, if you ask me.
A: Well, we've had to add that to the contract because we found that many of our employees were taking almost one day a month, even though they weren't sick.
B: I see. I guess that makes sense.
A: Do you have any other questions?
B:Yes. Maternity leave is mentioned in the contract, but there's nothing in the contract about paternity leave. Do you offer anything to fathers?
be mentioned in...表示“有在...被涉及/提到”
A: We do actually. We can add that as an amendment to your contract.
B: How many days of paternity leave do you offer?
A: Men are allowed to take ten days of paternity leave for their first child.
be allowed to...表示“被允许...”比如“你被允许吃完饭抽根烟”翻译为“You are allowed to smoke after the meal”。那“不被允许做”就是“be not allowed to”
B: Why are women allowed so much more time for maternity leave?
A: Well, women are the ones giving birth. I think it's fair to give them more time, don't you?
B: I guess so. I don't have any other questions. Should I sign here then?
A: Yes, please.
