RE: Requesting leave for personal reason

Dear Ms. Jones, 

As you may already know, my young daughter is having some serious health problems. 

Although she’s seen a number of different health care providers and endured many tests to address the problem, she unfortunately needs surgery. 

She requires a serious neuro-based type of surgery and therefore I will need to be at her side and care for her for a number of weeks while she recovers. I am sorry to say that I need the full 12 weeks of unpaid leave. 

Her doctor has already filled out the request from that I obtained from the human resources department. Because I respect the company I work for and am trying to be as fair as possible, 

I am giving you a full month’s notice so you’ll have enough time to make adequate arrangements to cover my position while I’m away. 

My daughter’s surgery is scheduled for [DATE]. I intend to work up until the previous [DATE] to ensure that my job is covered. 

I am more than willing to train someone to do my job or wrap up any business matters if you like. I expect to return on [DATE]. As of right now, these are the anticipated dates for her surgery and my time of leave. 

If anything changes I will let you know immediately. Hopefully I can return before [DATE] if all goes better than expected and retain my current position in the company. 

I truly appreciate your consideration and understanding concerning this sensitive matter. I respect both you and the company and feel it’s been an honor to work here over the past 12 years. 

Again, thank you for understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, I intend to be here every day until [DATE]to talk with you.

Sincerely,

Signature
