Your name - Reason for being absent from work
Dear (supervisor name):
Please accept this message as notification that I would appreciate the time off work specified (dates) as I will be attending (event).
Please let me know if I need provide any further information.
(your typed name)
Most companies and employers will allow this time off work as long as your letter is received in plenty of time, so that they are able to make sure enough people will be working to cope with the workload at that time.
Reason for missing work may be due to doctor’s appointment. Employers are happy to allow sick workers time off, since it is in the best interests of both employer and employee.
If, tragically, you have to miss work due to a funeral, you employer should allow you the time off to attend the funeral. If it was a member of your immediate family, employers may even allow additonal time-off to mourn.
The chances of being allowed time off really depends on the type of job that you do. The NHS for example, may not allow time off for things like a child’s award presentation, but will force you to take time off if you are ill.
