The format of how to send a sick email to a boss for some time off is relatively simple; however, you should ensure you carry it out in the right way if you are to seem professional.

  • Be aware of procedure
In order to make sure you are sending an effective sick leave notification email you must firstly look into the company's rules or handbook that are likely to have a section regarding sick leave. It is important that you do this because every working establishment is different and they may need you to write a specific email for this situation. It is also likely to mention who and how you address the email to them, as well as how far in advance an employee must inform their boss.

  • Try to get cover
It would be a good idea for you to look at the schedule, especially if you work in shifts. In this case, you may be able to get another employee to cover the shift for you so you will not have to use a vacation day to book it off. This also allows your boss from having to go through the hassle and rigmarole of sorting out work load for other employees while you're not there.

  • State your reasons
Within the email you will need to state the reason why you need the time off and the exact dates from when the time off starts to the date you intend to come back to work. You should finalize the email with a polite thank you and a request for them to get back in touch with you.
