Once you join the work force, there is barely time for any other activity. Full-time employment demands that you are at work everyday, on time and ready to produce high quality work. This can put your personal life on the back burner. No matter how enjoyable your job is, there comes a time were you have to attend to matters other than work. This can include pregnancy and funerals or weddings if out station. Some of these events can be over short interval but when dealing with a pregnancy, illness, or a out station visit a longer time period is required. Companies have different policies dealing with these matters but in all cases you will need to apply for a long leave. Below are some samples that can inspire you to write your own long leave application.

Dear Mr. Montana,
After your recommendation during our conversation last week, I am writing to you today to request a long leave from June 1 to June 30. I need the one month to recover from surgery which will be performed to remove my gall bladder.
My doctor has recommended that I have the surgery performed as soon as possible. Once I am back in the office I will provide you with all certificates and doctors reports for my file.
I will be on bed rest and will not be able to attend to many phone calls. That is why I recommend that Timothy Cruz be assigned my tasks until I return. He is familiar with my projects and should not have any problems covering on my behalf.
Thanks and regards.

Subject: Long Leave
I would like to request a long leave of 3 weeks starting on March 20th. I will be returning to the factory on April 16 to pick up my duties. The reason for my extended leave is the expected delivery of my first child.
My wife does not have any family in the area and I will need to be at home to help her recover from the birth. I will also be taking care of my child the first week so that my wife is not overburdened with a hectic workload.
I have several projects in the pipeline at the moment and they will not be affected by my leave. I will be working on them from home periodically. If someone needs to contact me from the office I am available by phone or email.
Thank You for your time.
