    Leave of absence

    I have to write an email to my HR informing about my leave of absence for 3 days as i have to attend a training (approved by my boss). We have to manually clock in/Clock out of office everyday. If she is informed about my absence she will go ahead and clock me in Manually.

    Although i can speak pretty good english, i'm pathetic at writing. Please help me with my informal email. How should i write it?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm confused. Your boss knows you're going and hasn't told HR? And you're supposed to be clocked in and out even if you're not there?

    As for the email, just give them the relevant details. As long as you're clear about that they'll be happy.

    LOL. Yes, it's a very small organization and unfortunately there is a huge communication gap between everyone.
    My question is how do i write the email. I have recently started working and i lack even the basic email knowledge/etiquette.

    Note my corrections above. Remember that you must always capitalise the word "I" (first person singular pronoun) - it doesn't matter where it appears in the sentence. Also, capitalise proper nouns, such as "English".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
