RE: Sick Leave
Dear Mr. Mathews,
I would like to request a 3-day leave to visit my doctor and recover from a terrible flu. I will be out of the office from November 23 to November 25 and will return on November 26 for a full day of work.
I do not have any immediate deadlines that need to be met so I will not need any one to cover for me at work. However, I will be available by phone in case of any emergency.
If required, I can also provide all medical documents on my return to the office.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

Dear Mr. Wong,
I would like to request a leave from December 24, 2011 to January 3, 2012 as part of my annual leave. I currently have 10 days left over in my balance for the year and would like to utilize them for the upcoming Christmas season.
I will be travelling to Florida to visit my parents and enjoy warmer weather. I can be reached by phone in case of any questions from the office. Since my leave is during the Christmas season, I do not have any immediate deadlines to meet on any of my projects.
I will greatly appreciate a positive response from you.
