Number of Work Days In a Year

How many work days are there in a year?


There are around 245 work days in a year. In most countries around the world a 5-day work week is adopted. The Holidays With Pay Convention of the International Labour Organization, on the other hand, entitles workers to three weeks’â„¢ paid leave. Therefore instead of the 52 weeks in a year a usual worker works for only about 49 weeks. This translates to 245 days of work on average for workers worldwide.
