You work for an international company and need to take some time off work to celebrate a family event. Write a letter to your manager. In your letter ● give details of the family event and why it is important you attend ● say how much time you will need away from the office ● suggest how your work could be covered while you are away

letter to ask that you grant me permission to be away from work within the
two weeks of May 2023 which is between the 17th and the 31st day of May;
is to enable me to travel and attend my late father's burial ceremony. It is important that I travel in order to meet up with the demands of our tradition which require every first female child of the deceased family to be present during the funeral rites and fortunately, I am the first female child of my parents. I am aware that the company is presently short-staffed and as
, getting someone to do my duties may be a hard nut to crack; I have
approached Doctor Samuel who is supposed to be on call during the above-mentioned period and he consented to swap my duties with his own. To
effect, I have taken notes of his duty days from the hospital administrator and have ensured that necessary adjustments are made on the duty roaster for effective operations at every instance. Thank you and I hope to receive a favourable response from you soon. Yours faithfully, Doctor Ada Okeke
