    Answered . Assuming you intended to post this in the employment practice area, I can only further assume you are talking about a three days notice from the employer that something was going to happen, or a three day notice from the employee to the employer of some decision.

    In the employment context, it would be reckless to assume that a notice giving you three days to act will be counted in business days. Assume actual calendar days. Do not count the first day when the deadline was communicated. Start counting with "1" being the next day.

    Good luck to you.
