Time Off Request basics

Our Time Off Request Form is a formal way to inform your employer that you're taking vacation or sick-leave. If you're an employer, providing these documents to your workers can make everything easier for them, and help ensure you receive proper notice of any absences. A Time Off Request helps keep everything easy.

Use the Time Off Request document if:

  • You want to take time off but your employer doesn't have a pre-existing form.
  • You're a small business owner and want to give your employees all necessary forms they might need.
  • You work in HR.

You may have accumulated a mountain of vacation time, but nothing is official until you've completed and turned in your Time Off Request Form. After all, you want to make sure it's approved and that you're not making more problems for yourself. Maybe there's a big push to finish an important project, or perhaps another key person in your department has requested the same period of time off - either way, it's smart to make an official request. Or maybe you're a small business owner, you want to make it simple for your employees to give you notice. In addition, having that notice in writing can help you keep track of vacation time and personnel. It doesn't matter if it's for a vacation, special event, or personal day; a Time Off Request helps keep things organized.
