leave application letter for grandmother expired
Leave applications are generally submitted to the boss well in advance by the employees so that the work does not get hampered during the leave and the boss can assign the work of that employee to some other employees.

However, an advance leave application is not possible if some urgent matter comes up which was not foresighted earlier and which needs to be attended to at the earliest. Hence, an emergency leave application is submitted to the boss for approval.

You can use the following format for applying for emergency leave because of the death of any relative in your family. Just modify the wordings appropriately and submit it to the boss.
