Subject: Request for maternity leave

Dear Mrs. Leslie,

I am writing this letter to inform you that I am seven and half months pregnant so I want to ask that I start my maternity leave slightly earlier than we first discussed. My previous health problems and my backbone operation makes me uncomfortable to sit or stand for long times. My doctor has recommended me complete bed rest otherwise I may cause further damage to my already fragile spine.

I therefore ask, if possible to be released me from my duties next week for the sixteen weeks stipulated by law. If you require a letter from my doctor I can supply you with one.

As discussed before, on completion of my maternity leave, I wish to return to my position within the store, we will discuss in due course the exact date,

Thanking you in advance for your consideration,


Mrs. Glynnis Kody
