Search Engine giant Google is giving employees an additional holiday ahead of Labor Day. The idea is to avoid employee burnout amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The Google is marking September 4 as a one time paid holiday to preserve ‘collective wellbeing‘ as the pandemic enters its seventh month, reported CNBC citing company documents.
The extra day off will turn the Labor Day holiday into a four day weekend. Labour Day is celebrated on September 7 in the United States.
