An urgent leave letter is written in extreme circumstances, and is very different from usual leave letters. Most organizations require their employees to submit leave letters well in advance – this request is then processed over a few days, after which the leave request is either approved or rejected. Another feature of regular leave letters is that they outline the exact dates for the leave – the letter clarifies the number of days the leave is required for, the specific dates on which it is required, and by when the employee will be coming back to work.
However, an urgent leave letter does not contain all this information. An urgent leave is taken in case of an emergency – this request is often submitted on the very day the leave is required, or just one day in advance. Owing to the haphazard nature of an emergency, the urgent leave letter also does not mention a specific time duration for the leave required, and sometimes the writer is also not able to provide an exact date on which s/he will be returning to work.
If you find yourself needing to write an urgent leave letter, try providing all the information you might have at that point in time, such as the reasons behind your request for an urgent leave, as well as your contact information.

I have just received a call from a family member, notifying me that my son is not feeling well. He has to be picked up from school and taken to the hospital, owing to which I wish to request an urgent leave. I will make sure I provide all of the important information to the Human Resource department, and leave my contact number with them, in case I need to be reached for some reason.
I aim to return to work by the 23rd of January 2012, i.e. tomorrow, although I cannot commit to this date, owing to the uncertainty surrounding the severity of my son’s illness. When I return, I will make sure I complete all my pending work. Please do take my humble request into consideration.
Thanks and regards,

Owing to an urgent piece of work, I am forced to request an urgent leave for today, i.e. the 23rd of January, 2012. I apologize for informing you on such short notice, but the nature of the emergency was fairly sudden, giving me no prior warning. I intend to come back to work by tomorrow, the 24th of January 2012.
Kindly consider my request, I will be very grateful.
