DO’S AND DON’TS:

While writing a not feeling well to your boss or a sick leave mail to manager, the following do’s and don’ts should be followed to make the letter look professional and polished.

DO’S:

  • Try speaking with your boss directly, or via a call, and ask his/her permission before sending an official mail.
  • Make the call short with a formal invitation, the reason being a sick leave and other important details.
  • Apologize for passing the burden of your work to another person in your not feeling well letter to boss.
  • Consult the person first and ask if they can take up your pending work and work on it.
  • Mention the number of days you’ll be absent.

DON’TS:

  • Don’t fake your sickness.
  • Try not to take holidays much on Fridays and Mondays, since it may be assumed that you’re extending your weekend.
  • Don’t make a promise that you’ll reach after lunch if you aren’t sure.
  • Don’t call from a game or party, i.e., check your background.
