Dear sir or ma’am,

I am [mention your name] from [mention the name of your department], working as the [mention your position] in [mention the name of your organization or corporation]. I am writing this email to request you grant me sick leave. 

I won’t be able to come to work starting from today, for [mention the number of days], as I am suffering from a high fever. For the past few days, while working, I have not been feeling well. I have been experiencing dizziness, my muscles were aching, I was not able to eat properly during lunch hours and after reaching home, I had a headache every time.

I dismissed all of this as signs of stress or exhaustion from work but since last night I am having a serious fever and so I finally consulted our family physician, Mr. or Mrs. or Ms. [mention the name] and after examining me, he said that it is a viral fever, [mention the name] and I am advised to take bed rest for a few days.

You can check my leave record, sir or madam, I have hardly taken leaves. I have been worked as a sincere, dedicated individual, working hard to make a fair contribution to the success and development of the organization always. But this time, I really need it.

I have prepared and submitted all the reports of the current project [mention the name] to Mr. or Ms. [mention the name] and there won’t be any problem due to my absence I believe.

I will be joining the team as soon as I feel a little better. Currently, I am on medications. Still, if you ever feel that you need me for anything then [mention the contact number] is my personal number or you can reach me at my personal email ID [mention it] as well. 

I hope that you would understand. Thank you for your cooperation.

Regards,

Dear sir or ma’am,

This letter is written by me, [mention your name], the [mention your designation], working in [mention the name of your department] in [mention the name of the company or organization]. I request you to kindly allow me sick leave.

I apologize but it will not be possible for me to come to work for [mention the number of days] as my father is having a [mention the name of the disease] operation on [mention the date] and I have to be there beside him these few days.

In spite of the fact that he was sick, I couldn’t be there for him all this while as I was too busy with my professional life, working dedicatedly, and devoting all my time to the advancement of the organization, ever since I started working here, i.e. from the year [mention it]. I have in fact been ignoring all of my personal commitments but this time, I can’t. He needs me and I have to be there.

As soon as things fall into place, I will try to be at work as soon as possible. I finished all the work that you have assigned to me and I have handled all the reports to our [mention the position of the person].

I would like to assure you that the [mention the name of the project] is also taken care of. I know I should have let you know this before but I couldn’t and once again I apologize for that. I have attached all the medical documents and certificates to this email.

I am reachable at [mention your contact no.] or you can reach me via email as well. If there is an emergency, please feel free to call me.

I sincerely hope that you would understand my situation and I thank you from the very core of my heart.

Subject- Asking for sick leave

Dear sir or ma’am,

I am [mention your full name], the [mention your post] from your [mention the name of the department], working in [mention the name of the firm or organization] for [mention the time period]. I am framing this email to request you grant me sick leave.

I didn’t know that I am suffering from a sinus infection. I was always sensitive to cold but then I have avoided it always. Whenever I used to catch a cold, it was accompanied by a serious headache and facial pain, especially the eye sockets ached, but I always dismissed it thinking that’s what happens when you catch a cold. Besides, it was bearable, and I came to the office, working in that condition, taking medicines whenever I faced a bit too much.

However, the last few days, I experienced some other major symptoms as well and after I consulted my doctor, he said that it is due to sinus and I need to take rest for a few days, without any stress, forgetting all the work pressure. 

I have been sincerely working at this organization right from the very beginning and I have always made sure that I do all my duties with perfection and that I have successfully finished them on time, thus always adding value to the name of the organization. I would request you to kindly excuse me this time.

I have taken care of all the responsibilities that I had till now and I will mail you the reports today itself. Additionally, I would mail my doctor’s prescription as well, submitting the medical records and the other documents to the office, once I rejoin.

I believe I will be able to come to the office from [mention the date].

Thank you for understanding.

Please feel free to contact me at [mention the number], if you need me.

Regards,

Subject- Requesting to grant a sick leave

Dear sir or ma’am,

This is [mention your name], working at [mention the name of the department] as [mention your role], in [mention the name of your organization or corporation] ever since the past [mention the number of years]. I am composing this email to request you to grant me sick leave for [mention the number of days].

Right from the very first day since I joined this notable organization, my only aim is to make sure that I am able to make a significant contribution to the name and fame of this corporation and for this, I have always tried hard.

I am proud to say that, working dedicatedly, I have successfully managed all my tasks and have landed some major projects for the ultimate advancement of the entity. I have hardly taken any leaves, until and unless it’s absolutely necessary and this is one of those times that I believe that I need to avail my sick leave.

First of all, I would like to tell you that I belong to [mention the name of your town] and it’s because of the job that I have been living at [mention this city where you are living] all alone. I received a call last night when my mother mentioned that my elder sister, with whom I am very close, has suffered a mild heart attack.

Due to my work commitments, I scarcely visited them all these years, but now I need to be there for my sister. I am really sorry that I can’t let you know any sooner but today I am taking a flight to [mention the name of your town] and will only be back after [mention the number of days].

I have mailed all the necessary reports that I was supposed to submit today and I will make sure that you have all the medical reports as well, as soon as I am back from there. In my absence, my senior, [mention the name] will be looking after things. If you need me during this time, please give me a call at [mention your personal contact number]. 

I will be rejoining the office from [mention the date]. I hope that you understand and will excuse me.

Thank you so much.

Regards,
