What's block leave?

When I wrote to someone, and he answered with a auto email writing "I am on block leave and back on...". Could you please help me understand "block leave" here?

    It just means he is on holiday/vacation for a block of time - a week/fortnight (two weeks)/month etc rather than just one or two days.

    It means the person is away for perhaps a week or refers to a block (chunk) of time.

    This refers to annual leave taken in a block of time, e.g. one week or more, to provide staff with a period of extended rest and refreshment. Sabbatical Leave and Career Break Leave are examples of Block Leave.
