"SICK LEAVE POLICY TEMPLATE"
[Your Name] [Street Address] [City, ST ZIP Code] April 9, 2008 [Recipient Name] [Title] [Company Name] [Street Address] [City, ST ZIP Code] Dear [Recipient Name]: There seems to be some misunderstanding concerning Contoso Pharmaceuticals’ sick leave policy. Each employee is allowed 10 days of sick leave per year during the first five years of employment. During the sixth through the ninth years of employment, each employee is allowed 15 days of sick leave each year. Any employee of 10 or more years is granted 20 days of sick leave annually. Sick leave may be accumulated up to one full year (365 days). After an absence of two days, an employee must seek medical advice and present a doctor's excuse upon return to work. Failure to do so may result in docking of pay for any sick leave after two consecutive days. For further information, refer to the employee manual or contact our benefits officer, Annik Stahl. I hope this clears up any misunderstanding, particularly concerning the doctor's excuse. Sincerely, [Your Name] [Title]
