Letter of Return to Work Following Medical Leave

Employees’ medical leaves can be for different medical issues. They can be maternity leave, sick leave, or leaves due to any major injury. All these leaves are kept as tangible records. Such leaves are important when an employee becomes medically able to resume his duties.

When the medical leave is about to end, proper work is done by both the employer and employee. The employee has to request a medical fitness certificate from his attending physician. This certificate is a must-have part of the return-to-work letter. It states that the employee is able to work, and it also states about the further treatment that is still going on. And the employee’s capabilities about how much he can perform.

Furthermore, the employee must feel comfortable before sending the return-to-work letter. He should feel at ease taking on only those duties that he can medically perform. He can talk to his supervisor about any amendments he wants to the work schedule. The official procedure must be followed thoroughly to ensure accuracy.



I am writing to inform you that I am ready to come back to work after my medical leave of one week. Since my doctor has given me the green light to return to work, I will be rejoining the office on Monday, March 25th.

I am grateful to you and our team for your cooperation during my absence. I truly appreciate the support.

Please let me know if there are any updates or changes I should be aware of before I return. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again and getting back to work.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.


I am happy to inform you about my plans to return to work following my recent surgery. Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude for the company’s understanding and support during my medical leave.

However, based on my doctor’s advice, I will initially resume work from home starting Monday, June 13th, 20XX. This will allow me to perform my work responsibilities without putting a lot of stress on my health. After another follow-up appointment a week later, the doctor will assess my recovery and provide guidance on when I can safely travel and return to the office.

I am committed to ensuring a smooth workflow during this period and will stay in close communication with the team. I appreciate the company’s cooperation and patience during this time.

I can’t wait to rejoin my team and be back at work. I hope to see you soon.


I hope you’re having a productive time at work.

As you know, I got this bad fracture after slipping at the coffee shop during working hours. The fracture became terrible, and as we all know, fractures take time to recover. Considering this fracture, the doctor advised me to take bed rest and avoid moving, which can cause exertion.

However, after my recent appointment with the doctor, the doctor has given me the good news that I have recovered well and started working again. So, I have decided to resume work on Monday. Let’s just plan a meeting once I come back and take things from there.

With thanks.


Hello Peter

Last Friday, I met with my doctor, who performed several medical tests. The test reports have come to show improvement in my knee injury. The updated medical report is attached to this letter.

I am writing this to inform you that I can start work on Wednesday, April 15th. The knee condition is stable, and I can continue to work without much difficulty. The doctor has prescribed me medicine and some exercise to help me recover quickly. Can we have a meeting on Monday or Tuesday to schedule things in advance?

Please let me know at your convenience.

With Thanks.

Letter Rejecting Holiday Extension of an Employee and Advising Him to Return to Work

Dear Becky,

I hope you’re having a great time on vacation.

With a lot of concern, I must inform you that we must reject your request for a further two weeks’ holiday. As you know, this is the busiest time of the year for us. And granting you further leave will mean a lack of resources when needed.

Therefore, we would like you to start work again on Monday. Please make sure to make any necessary arrangements to report back in time. You have always supported us in our time of need. We would appreciate your support one more time.

With thanks.
