A leave request letter is a document an employee writes to their employer to ask for days off to go for a vacation or attend to important family issues. Every employee is entitled to leave each year besides days off. An employee can plan to use this time to attend important family events such as weddings. In the letter, one must indicate the reason for the leave and how long they’ll be away.
You must use the proper format and words to ask for leave or else your employer will deny you leave. If not sure of how to write the letter, it’s essential to refer to templates or samples.
