    Default Total amount of time at work...

    Hello,

    how do you call the total amount of time that a person works in a day?
    I tried "work journey" on google, and I found many matches for this (noun?).

    If this is what I think it is. Is this the most common way to express that? Is there any other?

    Thanks.

    Working period
    Work time
    Working day

    "Work journey" as a string can lead to many different possible usages, but most often it relates to the journey made in order to get to the place of work. And of course Google ignores any form of punctuation, so there are lots of examples in which the phrase is in fact not a phrase.

    Oh, my fault. I trust google so much that i didn't even check the results.

    Thank you.
