HR Form of the Week: Personal Leave Approval Letter

Posted By: Guardian HR Staff Posted On: October 1, 2023 Share:

Each week, we will feature a different document from our forms library and provide information about where to find it, what it's used for, and any necessary instructions. With this program, you'll always be one step ahead of the game when it comes to finding the forms you need.

This week, the HR Form of the Week is a Personal Leave Approval Letter.

For clients with access to the Forms Library, you can locate the document as follows:

A personal leave of absence, often simply referred to as a "personal leave," is a period of time during which an employee may take a temporary break from work. This type of leave is usually granted for personal reasons that fall outside of protected leave reasons and leaves such as the federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or any state-specific equivalent, pregnancy and childbirth, sick leave/disability, bereavement etc.

Personal leaves of absence are generally unpaid, can vary in duration, ranging from a few days to several months, depending on the situation and the policies of the organization. For examples of a personal leave of absence policy, please visit the Guardian HR Forms Library Leaves of Absence folder and access the folder “Personal & Sabbatical Leave".

It's important to note that the specifics of personal leave, including its duration, return to work requirements, benefit information etc. are clearly outlined to the employee. This week’s HR Form of the Week provides such framework in form of a template letter.

We hope you find this information valuable and that it helps to make your HR experience easier and more efficient.
