Leave Letter

Sample Leave Letter

Writing a leave letter to an employer is a very simple and straightforward task. It is necessary to keep the letter short and concise while stating the reason in clear terms. The tone of the letter should be formal and not casual.

In the body of the letter you should mention the exact number of days you want to be absent from work, with dates. You should be able to give the exact date of resuming work, so that the employer is clear. Reason for the leave should be stated in clear terms and it should be a valid reason.

You could also add details of all the projects that you are handling at present and the status of the same. This will give a clear idea to the employer about your work schedule and of any important deadlines. You could also state that you have handed over the projects to your colleague.

You end the letter by thanking them for considering the application and also by giving your contact numbers, if possible, for the leave period. This will help them contact you in case of emergency.

Sample Leave Letter Tip:

Leave letters are formal leave applications, written to get sanction of leave.

Leave letters are generally brief and to the point.

One must clearly state the number of days of leave required, mentioning the exact dates of leave requisitioned.

One is also expected to give a valid reason for the leave. For example, a visit to the dentist could be your reason for leave as seen in the Sample leave letter.

If your reasons are personal and cannot be specifically mentioned, you may explain as much in the letter, stating personal reasons as the cause of your leave of absence. In such circumstances, one is not expected to go into details.

Leave letters are formal letters so, the format as well as the tone and content should be suitably formal.

One must always remember to thank the addressee before formally signing off.

Dear Mr. Dharwat,

This is to request for an emergency leave for two days starting tomorrow. My mother met an unfortunate accident yesterday and she is currently confined at the local hospital. She needs to undergo an important operation tomorrow and I need to stay with her at the hospital to make sure that all goes well. It is very important for her that all her children be at her bedside during this operation. I know that I will not be able to concentrate on my work if I report to work on the day so it is better that I file a leave, too.

I have already informed my staff about the matter and have already given them instructions about the work that must be done in the two days that I am gone. My assistant will replace me during my absence as is her responsibility.

Thank you.

Respectfully,

Ms. Gajna Gorawala
