Request for Leave of Absence

Getting married?  Lovely! Let those wedding bells ring!  But before you and your new spouse trot off to a romantic sandy beach, you’ll need to put in a Request for Leave of Absence.

A Request for Leave of Absence should be the first step to take whether you’re getting married, going on a second honeymoon, having a baby or just taking some much needed vacation time. 

Most companies appreciate, if not require, a request such as this, no matter the reason for your time away from work. 

This template makes writing up request for leave a snap. 

Although this example uses getting married as the reason for leave, a different reason can easily be pasted to tailor fit your personal needs.


Dear ___________,

As you may have heard, I am getting married on the 27th of April, 1986. 

It is with this in mind that I am requesting a thirty (30) day leave of absence.

My fiancé is able to combine a business trip to Europe with our honeymoon, and I would hate to miss this rare opportunity. 

I will be back at my desk, with my full attention to the sales department, as always, on the 28th of May, 1986. 

If you need any additional information, please contact me at extension 234, in the sales department.
