Leave of absence is different from the usual leave as the leave of absence is a long term of time that an employee takes while a usual leave from work is a short-term absence. In this time of increasing competition, employees have been loaded with more work.
A time comes when an employee seeks to refresh himself, give time to his family, enjoy a vacation, or take time off for work just to stop a continuous workload. In such cases, an LOA or leave of absence is the solution. Companies have their LOA policies defined.
So, in most cases, if a request for the leave of absence of vacation complies with the policies, it is granted. An approval letter for vacation or leave of absence should be written in a little informal and light tone. Since the employee wishes to seek refuge from the tensions of work, it is better to Goodbye him assuring that he has been granted leave happily and as his due right so that the employee could enjoy his off time.
