It is slightly difficult to answer this question as we do not know what you are joining. Any letter that is written needs to be specific about the event and the delay.

  • Information regarding who the letter is for
You always need to begin the letter with your personal information and that of the person receiving it. The name and address should be present. Also, the date that the letter is written needs to be included, along with the name of the person you are addressing the letter to.

  • Body of the letter
The body of the letter is where we will leave most of the writing up to you. Since it is a letter asking for leave you need to be specific about why you need the leave. If the leave is for an emergency or personal matter you should give enough details to make it clear the matter is important. You can leave off being too specific or personal given that it could be a private matter that you do not wish to disclose. The letter is also asking or explaining your delay in joining something. Due to the delay, you will want to provide when you believe you will be able to make it to the area, team, job, or whatever you are joining. You should give a date, time, or weekday. It is best to be specific if at all possible; however, if you are unsure as to the exact time you will be joining in you should provide a best guess. Explain that you may be two or three days or possibly weeks with the delay.

  • Closing the Letter
  • As with any letter you need to include salutations, your name in print, and sign the letter so that it is official and businesslike.
