I have been working as a floor manager for the past ten years at the company’s Thomas Street branch, and I am writing this letter to request an urgent transfer to my hometown branch.
All these years I have been travelling for an hour to work and I had no issues with that. However, last week, my wife met with an accident and broke her legs. Two months rest was advised by her doctor. As our children are at study abroad, it is my responsibility to spend some quality time helping her.
I am aware that the company operates an office in Cox Town, my home city, and working here would mean being close enough to my wife. If my exact role is not available at this office, my second option is Brunner Street branch, which is almost 8 km away.
As this is a time sensitive issue, I would like to further request you that I receive confirmation of the transfer within a week or I may have to consider to apply for a two-months leave.
