Write An Application To The Boss Requesting Leave For My Father’s Illness In English

Subject – Application for leave for my father’s illness.


With all due respect and honour, I would like to state that my father is suffering from an illness called Arthritis. Arthritis is the swelling of one or more joints We scheduled an appointment to the doctor at Heal and Health Hospital, New Delhi. We were told that the case is quite serious and it needs to be taken care of at the earliest because if not, it may cause other health complications.

I would like to request leave for a week i.e. 6th of April 2022 till the 13th of April 2022 to go to my hometown and take care of my father since we have no family support at the moment. My siblings are living out of state and will be returning home only after a week due to delayed flights. We will be taking turns to look after my father. I will be back to resume my work on the 14th of November 2022.

I will put forth as much effort as I have lost during my leave and make up for the lost time. I have requested Sir Hans to be my replacement for the time of my absence and he gladly accepted to do so.

I, therefore, kindly request you to grant me my leave for which I shall remain ever grateful.

Thanking you

Yours sincerely,
Benson A
