Family Member Sick Leave Messages


Dear boss, I regret it inform you that I will be unable to attend work today as my brother has caught covid-19 and he is showing severe symptoms of it. He has been coughing non-stop and therefore I have to be there for any worse situation. Yesterday, it took me five hours to manage oxygen for him. Kindly allow me to take leave for today so I could look after my sick brother. Will much appreciate your cooperation.


Dear sir, my younger single sister has been living with me for a couple of months now and she has caught food poisoning. She has been throwing up for two days and the medication does not seem to have been working on her. I will need today off from the office to take her to the hospital now before it gets worse. I apologize for this inconvenience, and I vow to complete all my work tomorrow.


Dear ma’am, as you already are aware I am a punctual and disciplined employee of the company and got even an award for it. However, today I need to break my normal and take off as my father is not feeling well. He is very dear to me, and I want to dedicate the day to making him feel better. I hope you will forgive me for this unexpected leave. I assure you I will get back tomorrow and execute the due duties.


Dear boss, with a heavy heart, I would like to inform you that I am unable to attend the office today as my mother has fallen sick and I have to look after her. I have to take her to the hospital as she lives with me and arranges for her medication as well. I will need the day off for this task. I appreciate your cooperation. Thanks!


Dear sir, I reckon I already have taken quite a few leaves and my paid leaves are almost over but my uncle, who is very dear to me, has fallen seriously ill and I had to rush to emergency with him this early morning. The doctor has advised us to run some tests and do some further examinations to get experts’ opinions as well. Therefore, I will not be able to make it to the office today. Kindly allow me one more paid leave and I promise I shall make it up to you with unpaid overtime.


Dear ma’am, I am writing this message to inform you that I am unable to attend the office today as my mother is not feeling well since last night. I hoped it will get better in the morning, but her health only deteriorated. Kindly allow me to take leave for the day so I could look after her and give her proper medical attention. I appreciate your cooperation.


Dear sir, owing to the serious health condition of a very dear family member, I will have to spend the day attending to him and looking after him. I am afraid I won’t be attending work today. I apologize for the inconvenience.
