Dear Mr./Mrs. [Manager.LastName],

This is a formal request for a leave of absence from my position as [Employee.Title] at [Employee.Company]. I would be away from work from (MM.DD.YYYY) through (MM.DD.YYYY).

I would like to inform you that the reason for my request is (explain the reason to justify your time off from work, making sure it is covered by your employer’s leave of absence policy. For instance, the reason might be a family member’s wedding, medical emergency, jury duty, etc).

Please be advised that, if you approve my request, I will be more than willing to ensure no one is affected by my leave. I am prepared to create a plan of action that outlines the status of my pending projects and who would cover my job responsibilities while I am on my leave. If needed, I will be happy to train any colleague who will take on my duties during the specified period.

During my time away from work, I would be available to answer questions or assist my colleagues. I can be reached by phone [Employee.Phone] or email [Employee.Email] if any issues arise.

It is my full intention to come back to work as agreed and scheduled. Please be advised that I do not expect to ask for additional time off. However, if certain events beyond my control happen that would require me to extend my leave, I will notify you on time.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need any additional information. I hope to hear your decision about my request soon.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Kind regards,
