Short Sick Leave Message to Boss


I am writing this message to inform you that I am suffering from flu and fever for the last five days and now it is getting worse. It is becoming difficult for me to pay full attention to work and doctors have suggested rest for seven days and recommended tests. So, for this reason, I cannot come to the office. I will resume my work once I get better. I want to leave from 15-07-20XX to 21-07-20XX. In case I don’t get better and want further leaves, I will inform you. For your convenience, I have attached my doctor’s prescription along with this letter. If you want more information, then you can contact me on my phone number. Thank you.


Hope this message finds you in good health. I am Lipkin that has been given my services to [X] organization for the past three years. The purpose of writing this message is to seek your permission for ten days’ leave from 12-06-20XX to 21-06-20XX.

Today, I was getting ready for the office, and on my way to the office, I met with an accident. My car stuck in the signboard that was lying in the middle of the road and I couldn’t see it on time. As a result, my right leg got fractured and I have some minor injuries on the head and other parts of my body.

I am in hospital now and will get back to you once I get better. The doctors have prescribed me complete bed rest for seven days. Therefore, I request you that after going through the above-mentioned incident described, grant me leave for ten days. I shall be highly obliged to you for this favor.

Last night, I was at a party with my school friends and the food that we had ordered was poisonous. After eating poisonous food, I started vomiting and I got food poisoning.

I went to the doctor and he has prescribed me to not take the junk and fast food for a week. So, for this reason, I want you to grant me leave for three days. As my condition gets better, I will be back to work. If you want to ask anything about it then you can contact me by email, I will remain available there.
