Ref: Application for Paternity Leave

Dear Mr. Johnson,

Greetings!  My wife is due for delivery with our third child sometime between October 10 to 21, and I would like to apply for Paternity leave for two weeks that will start from the day of my wife’s delivery.  Our doctors have yet to confirm as to when exactly our baby will join our family.  I will keep you updated from time to time.

My responsibilities in the construction of a two-storey residential building are almost done. Currently, the project is 80% complete and I am expecting to turn over the project before October 10.  But in case I needed to take my Paternal Leave before that date, my assistant engineer and the rest of my team are all capable to handle the responsibilities in my absence.

I will provide your office my telephone numbers and email id.  I also provided my assistant engineer my contact details when the need arises. I am looking forward to your favorable response at the earliest possible time.

Thanking you.


John Gabriel
