How to write Leave Applications to your school principal or to your boss?
Everybody, sooner or later, but at some point during your career, you may need to request a leave of absence from your work, due to a variety of reasons, for example: personal or health-related issues, birth or adoption of your son or daughter, a break caused by excessive work-related stress, inevitable loss of a person close to you or maybe just a strong desire to travel the world.
Important to know: Other than for leaves covered by Family and/or Medical Leave Act (FMLA), military duty, jury duty, and some other particular circumstances, your boss is not required to approve your request for leave, nor is your company required to provide paid personal leave.
Try to keep it short and to stay neutral in your leave application request. If the reason you apply for leave is decent, there is no reason for them to decline your request. Especially when it's related to personal matters, such as sickness, attending a funeral, ailing parents or friends or early holidays.
