When an employee has to take an absence from work for personal reasons, they submit a leave application letter or a letter of absence to the appropriate authority. Writing such a letter demonstrates professionalism on the side of the employee and allows enough time for the team and the business to prepare.

In other words, a leave application is a formal manner of requesting a break from work for a certain amount of time.

If you are making a formal leave request, there are several guidelines and elements you must include: it should be short, concise, and provide adequate information about the cause for your absence.
