Sample Maternity Leave Letter Adding Vacation Leaves to the Leave Period

Maximize your Maternity leave by adding your remaining Vacation leaves (VLs) to the overall vacation period. The extra days will help you spend more time with your child. 

Dear HR Officer,

Please accept my formal notice of maternity leave. I am due in four months time, on 16 May 2011, please anticipate my return to work on June 30, 2011. My maternity leave spans more than the alloted month, but I am availing all my remaining vacation leaves to add up to this leave period. I would need the extra days to care for my infant until my childcare provider arrives, I have attached my OBGYNE note for my leave notice and in line with company policy, I also wish to request for my maternity benefits in full.

Regarding my work, I have advised Clara Ross, our junior marketing executive to oversee all the accounts I handle in the next few months. Rest assured, I will complete all my tasks and clear the primary invoices before my leave date. Please do not hesitate to call me if you need anything during this transition. 

Thank you for your support and consideration.

Best regards,

Letter Politely Declining Job Offer by Company

Its important never to burn bridges during your application process, you may meet these people again as you do business in your field. This letter demonstrates how to politely decline a job offer made to you so you can freely pursue another one which might be worth the benefits.

Dear Mrs. Schmidt,

Thank you for the generous job offer. I would like to thank your organization for being patient with me. While the position in Everhart-Maxx LLC is a wonderful opportunity, I've decided to accept another job offer more in line with my skills and graduate school coursework. This was a very difficult decision to make as I've always held your organization in high regard. I'm sure there are other candidates better suited for the position of Supervisor.

Thank you for your time and I wish the company all the best.
