When starting a professional leave letter, employees should consult with the policies and regulation of their company. These rules, which are usually created by the Human Resource department, should have very clear guidelines on types of leaves, how many leaves and when leaves can be taken. They should also have governance for annual leaves, medical leaves, emergency leaves and unpaid leaves. In most cases, a staff member will need to fill out an application and get their leaves approved by their immediate supervisor. Employees may also write a professional leave letter to request a leave. This letter should follow all company policies and be professionally written.
Provide all the details of the person you are addressing the letter to. Write the persons full name and their position. You should also add int he company name and the address of the firm.
This is where a staff member will add his or her information. Remember to add complete name and job title.
A line that briefly gives a gist of the letter is a good way to getting the point across quickly tot he reader.
Start off with a formal salutation using the last name and honorary.
Professional leave letters should be to the point and the first lines should ask for a leave and give the dates of the required leave. They should also give the return date. You can add a short description of the leave reason.
Reason for leave
You should always add a detailed reason for the leave in the body of the letter. This makes it easier for the reader to understand why you need a leave and increases your chances of approval.
The company will obviously be worried about what will happen to your tasks and projects once you are on leave. It is a good idea to mention all import tasks and if you need some one to cover for you. Also recommend someone that can handle the work while you are gone.
