The form has to include the following information:
- The name and department of the employee
- The number of leave days requested
- The period of the leave
- Leave type
- The signature of the employee
- The data of the request
- Manager’s approval/denial and the data of their response
For some leave types such as family reasons, personal situations, or time off without pay, the manager may need a reason. It’s better to include space for adding a reason in the form than keeping the request waiting until further information is delivered.
Using this Word template as a PTO request form you have all the necessary data to fill your employee time off tracking spreadsheet and have the employee’s updated situation in seconds.
