Dear Ms Todd

It is with great regret that I submit this letter as formal notification of my indefinite leave of absence due to unforeseen illness. You will find attached a copy of my medical certificate.

As per my employment contract, I am giving two weeks notice and my last working day will be 15 February 2014. I will do my utmost to complete all outstanding tasks and projects before that date.

Thank you for your understanding. It is my plan to return to full-time work as soon as possible and I will keep you apprised of my situation and availability.

Kind regards
