    off-day

    Suppose I am an employee. There are some days when we don not work on. If I am not working today, how can I express it to others?

    I know some expressions, i.e. I am on leave today. For police, doctors, guards etc, we can say "off-duty".

    How about "off-day"? I believe I have heard this word used but I am not sure. Any idea please?

    Thanks.

    Re: off-day

    'I'm having/taking a day off.'

    If you're having an off-day, you are not functioning to the best of your ability.

    I got a meaning of 'day off' in the free dictionary by Farlex. It says 'day off' is a day when we are not required to work. Eg: sunday is my day off as it is a weekend day.
