What's the difference between a MTA (Mandatory Time Away) and Vacations?

I'm working for a global company for over than 5 years and I'm still not quite sure if the term MTA(Mandatory Time Away) is common across other companies and, if so, if it means the same as a vacation?

I'd guess that, if it's a common expression, it only differs to a vacation because it's mandatory (whereas in some countries vacations aren't mandatory, as far as I know).

I don't believe splitting this question in two ('is MTA a common practice' and 'is MTA the same as vacations') would be valuable, but I'm looking forward to your opinions.

I hope this MTA is location-agnostic. Before asking this question, I did some research (including THISquestion) and discovered (to my surprise) that in the US a paid vacation isn't a common practice.
