Hi

Teacher says to someone else: If they do not have many hours to give away then probably I'll be free on Mondays. ---is it OK to use "give away"?

Thanks

Hi,
I don't see a clear meaning here.
In what context is he speaking? Do you know who he means by 'they'?

Possibly 'they' are the people who assign hours of work, in which case he may mean 'If they don't give me any work on Mondays, I'll be free on Mondays'.

Yes you're right. He's talking about people who assign hours at school. But is it OK to say: "give away" meaning that they distribute them?

Hi,
Yes. It's casual speech.
