How to write a sick leave letter

Sick leave letter is written to formally convey the management about your absence from the work due to sickness along with the medical reason and especially date when you were or will not be available to attend the office. The sick leave letter is always submitted along with the doctor’s advice regarding you condition i.e. medical certificate. Below you can find two samples of sick leave letter:

Therefore, it has been advised by the doctor to take complete bed rest for faster recovery due to which I won’t be able to attend the office. I regret over the inconvenience caused to the firm because of my illness.

I am willing to put in extra efforts to compensate the delay at work as I am back from my sick leave.

Thanks and Regards,
