Learn how to write an email to request time off work.
When requesting time off from work, it is always best to send a formal email. This ensures that your request is documented and that your employer can easily approve or deny your request. There are a few different types of time off that you can request, and each will require a different email.
Here is an email example:
I have three vacation days available and would like to use these at the end of November. My husband and I would like to plan a trip to California. Would it be OK to use my vacation days from Nov. 23-25? I looked at our team schedule and I should be able to finish reviewing the escrow records by then. I can be available by email during my vacation for quick questions. Let me know if you’d like to discuss it in person this week.
No matter what type of time off you are requesting, it is always best to send a formal email. This will ensure that your request is documented
