Every employee has the right to absent from work if she/he feels sick. It was my first time to absent from work yesterday and this is my letter of excuse to be given to our head nurse today.

Dear Maadam,

Greetings of peace!!

It is my desire and goal to make my best as much as I can to do my duties and responsibilities given to me, but I was sick and not feeling well due to my  tonsillitis and back pains that caused me not to attend my duty schedule or of being absent.

In this reason, I would like to ask favor from your to please consider my reasons of being absent yesterday May 20, 2012.

I’m willing to hear your advice and suggestions.

Thanks a lot and God bless.
