Subject: Request for maternity leave

Respected Sir/Madam,

As I have mentioned earlier, I’m writing this letter as an application for a maternity leave, starting from the 1st of August till the 10th of November. My application is to be submitted to the General Manager by the end of this week for it to be approved in time for the 1st of August.

In the period that I will be absent, I have arranged for a substitute to take my place and also complete all my work on time. I have filled her on in the amount of work to be completed. I hope the company will cooperate with her.

It is also my request that during the period of my absence, no work-related calls or any other entailments should be forwarded my way, as I have reserved this time for focusing on my health and reducing stress.

Kindly cooperate with my requirements. Please pardon any inconvenience caused.

Yours sincerely,

 

 

XYZ

This is a sample request letter for maternity leave due to a pregnant worker in a company. It is usually a formality for the expectant mother to write in to the Human Resources Dept. of the company to inform them of her upcoming maternity leave, citing the desired date to be released for delivery and recuperation.

Dear Ms. Aarons

I am writing to inform you that I am currently 7 months pregnant with my first child, who is due around the end of July 2010. I would like to request that maternity leave be granted to me from mid July 2010. I have attached the required maternity leave request forms for your perusal.

According to my leave records with the HR department, I am still entitled to 15 days of annual leave which I would like to add on to my maternity leave entitlement.

Please confirm this request and revert on the exact date when I should report back for work after the delivery of my baby. Also, kindly inform me of anything else which I would need to clear before my leave commences.

Thank you for your kind consideration on my request.

Yours Sincerely,

Amy Megano
Employee No: 2843
Dept: Services
