Mr. Johnson Hann
Human Resources Manager
Ref: Leave of Absence
Dear Mr. Hann,
I wish to apply for a one week leave of absence from March 15 to 21. My mother who is based in Manhattan will be undergoing a hip and knee replacement surgery and it is necessary for me to assist and take care of her.
The project that I am handling is almost complete and all is running smoothly but in case the project will not see completion before my leave, I already made necessary arrangement with my assistant Jane Claire. I already provided her with all documents she will need to handle the remaining work in my absence.
I will also provide your office and Miss Claire my contact details—home and mobile numbers and my email id. But in case of urgent need, I can visit the office during my leave since Manhattan is just a couple of hours away.
I am hoping that you will grant my request as it is necessary for me to assist my mother in her hospitalization and recovery.
Thank you and best regards.
