Oh, wait, no: you haven’t started thinking in acronyms just yet. John has left the office for his paid time off and will be back bright and early on June 28, but not at the office. Instead he’ll be working from the comfort of his own home. Then he sends his best regards and signs off, indicating where the message ends. Did you get all of the above information just from his exceptionally condensed communiqué?
Put simply, the end of the working day for someone. It’s used instead of hours because many time zones and many companies have different daily working hours, and in many corporate settings employees decide when they show up, then leave 8 hours after that. Put into the auto-responder feature of email this allows you to swiftly say you will not be working over a specific period of time, or have already left for the day. This is a shorthand for working longer than you normally do. Since in corporations nearly every day requires that, people have come up with a shorter version. This is a leave you can take for which you are paid.
