  1. Request for clarification of vacation policy

I am writing to seek clarification of the company vacation policy. According to my records, I have seven days of vacation available to me as of today, and I am planning to request vacation time off for a period six week from now.

  • Can you please confirm the number of days in my account?
  • According to my reading of the employee manual, I am accruing vacation days at the rate of one day for each completed month of service. Is that correct?
  • If I schedule my vacation for six weeks from now, which would be the third and fourth weeks of August, how many days will I have in my account? Will I accrue my August vacation day while I am out of the office on vacation at the end of the month, and can I use that day as part of my upcoming vacation?

Thank you for your assistance.

  1. Request for flextime

I would like to request a change in my working hours, as permitted under [Company Name]’s flextime program.

I would like to adjust my schedule to begin my day at 8 a.m., one hour earlier than ordinary business hours, and leave the workplace one hour early at 4 p.m. This will allow me to better coordinate my commuting schedule with available childcare for my daughter.

Attached is the required memo of approval from my supervisor.

  1. Request for bereavement leave

I am writing to request a three-day bereavement leave, effective immediately, to attend the funeral of a family member. Tammy Carpenter, my sister-in-law, passed away yesterday at Yawkey Memorial Hospital in Lumbertown, and services are planned for Friday of this week.

I have advised my supervisor of my need to assist my brother and family.

Thank you for your considerations.

  1. Waiver of confidentiality for employment details

I hereby grant permission to [Company Name] to disclose details of my employment to the Bank of Lumbertown in connection with my application for a mortgage.
