Leave Letter to Boss

Leave Letter to Boss


A Leave letter to the Boss is a request for taking leave by a subordinate. Some smaller companies may not have proper leave forms to be filled for leave; hence, a leave letter to the immediate supervisor would suffice. There are many reasons why an employee would require a leave. It could be due to a family emergency or for a vacation. Since every employee has a target to achieve it is important for him or her to give a prior notice to the boss about the leave so that he or she knows that you would not be able to work on your target for a few days.

The leave letter should request approval for the intended leave with the reason for the leave. Also, the duration for which you require the leave should be mentioned and you should also promise that you would get back to work on time and complete your target. You can also mention the details of your leave so that it becomes convincing for the boss to allow you for the leave. A leave letter for taking care of a new-born is called a parental leave letter. Remember to write this letter in a few days prior so that the boss can assign your share of the work to someone else if needed. Write the letter politely in the correct format with formal terms. Remember to thank the boss.

Dear Boss,

RE: Permission to take leave

I would like to request for some time off next week as my daughter Lily, is getting married next month. As such, my family has to make the necessary preparations as she is the only girl in the family and the first to get married. Being thead of the family,  all responsibility comes to me and along with my family I have to, do all advance preparations for my daughter’s marriage.

I would like to grant me leaves from April 30- May 6, 2017, off, which is a total of 7 days. To avoid any last time hustle I would like to finalise all important task during this one week of leaves. Being a proud father,  my presence and decisions are very much required.

I will do the knowledge transfer to Mr. Neel , he is ready to put extra hours during my weekly off. I will also be available on the phone if anything urgent comes up. Hope you can approve my leave quickly.

Thank you for your kind understanding on my leave request.

Yours Truly,

Gary Black
