There are various types of sick leave letters, in some a day or 2 days leave is asked while in some due to major medical reasons more than two days leave is requested. It is better that for full surety you provide a prescription report along with the letter so that there is no space left for ambiguity or confusion. The other thing which is important in a sick leave letter is the clean statement of dates on which the company will expect your absence, besides that the joining date as well. Make sure you join the company on the promised date or else it might affect your professional reputation.
