When you want to request a leave of absence, do you know to write a proper email or letter? It is vital for employees to explain clearly and politely before getting the approval. So, let’s learn the 4 steps in writing an appropriate email together!


  • Request for leave of absence politely


I would like to request a leave of absence on 5th July, Wednesday.


  • Explain the situation


I have been suffering from lower back pain since last month. My doctor advised me to take a health check on that day, so as to find out the reason.


  • State the arrangement during your leave of absence


I would be available by phone during the leave, so that you can contact me for any enquiries.


  • Apologize for the inconvenience caused and sincerely hope for the approval


I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused due to my absence. I would be very grateful for your consideration. I am looking forward to your reply.

With the steps above, requesting for a leave of absence is not as difficult as before!
