Requesting Leave of Absence

First of all, it is not recommended to file or to request for a leave of absence if you don’t have important things to do. Not mention that the personnel officer is very much aware on what will be the reasons why an employee file a leave.

Fling a leave of absence is very important not only for the company record but also for the employee to show that he/she follows accordingly such rules and regulation. There should be enough valid reason that the personnel officer will not resist on approving your request. Sometime a good structure also adds to the credit for request to be approved immediately.

Below is a simple request for leave of absence that can be used as guide in making one:

Dear Sir/Madam:

Introduction – this is very important because it will serve as the motivating factor for the personnel officer to heed about you request.

Most of the time, business institutions require a written request for before you absent. Unless your company has a form, but some still require you to write and this will be attached to the form.


I have received an email from my sister that she will be getting married on (date). Ever since we’ve promised each other that the first to get married, the other will the bride’s maid. This occasion will not be focused on the wedding alone but also a reunion of the family will follow the next day as well. For this, I consider this occasion very important to me and to my family.

In line with this, I would like to request your good office to grant me to leave for 3 days for me to attend this big family occasion. I’ll spend the first day for the wedding of my sister, the second day for the reunion and the third day will be used for me to travel back here and be ready to assume duties the following day.

Hoping for your favorable response on the matter.

Thank you very much.

Truly yours,
