Follow the sample email/letter format to write a leave extension email to your manager, boss or higher authority who should grant you permission. An extension leave is applied by an employee to let the management know that an employee is extending his leave for few more days and his/her work follow should not be stopped.
Leave extension letter should follow a specific format as you are once again applying extra days of leave. So make it a formal letter with reason for the leave extension.
