Dear [Supervisor’s Name],
I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to formally request a period of leave from work due to a family emergency. Unfortunately, my father has fallen seriously ill and requires my immediate attention and care. I believe it is my responsibility to be by his side during this challenging time.
I kindly request a leave of absence for a duration of ten (10) days, starting from [Start Date] to [End Date]. During my absence, I will make sure to complete any pending tasks and ensure a smooth transition of my responsibilities to a colleague, if necessary.
I understand the importance of my role in the team and will do my best to minimize any disruption that my absence may cause. I am willing to provide any assistance needed to ensure a seamless workflow during my leave.
I have attached a medical certificate from the attending physician detailing my father’s condition and the recommended duration of my presence for his care.
I sincerely hope you understand the urgency of my situation and grant me the requested leave. Your support and consideration during this challenging time would mean a great deal to me.
Thank you for your time and understanding. I look forward to your positive response.
