Dear Richard,

This is to inform you that I will be absent from work from 15.03.2018 to 27.03.2017. I have been told by the HR Manager to delegate my responsibilities at work during this time period.

I would like to inform you that you will be required to head the weekly meetings of Marketing Department, held every Friday. During this meeting, you will have to give team their weekly targets to follow. You have to review and prepare the analysis report of daily work report submitted by the team members. You will have my assistant Linda Mathew assist you in everything.

I am taking this leave because I have to undergo a small surgery on 17.03.2018 and this would require me to take good rest post surgery. I would need your cooperation to make sure that there is loss of work because of my absence. You have always been very supportive and helpful and I am sure that you will be able to manage everything. I also assure you the best of help from my end whenever you need it.

In case, you have any issues in carrying out these duties, please feel to seek help from my assistance. You may also get in touch with me any time after 19.03.2018 as I will be discharged by then.

Thanking in anticipation.
