Subject: Introduction of adoption leave in our organization.

Respected Sir,

I am writing this letter to bring to your notice about the “Adoption Leave” that the government of India has made possible in the year 2006 (please find the enclosed GO of GOI).

I would like for this leave to be introduced in our organization as a policy to benefit the adoptive families. Apart from benefiting the families, this portrays our organization’s name in good light as “Family Friendly” in the society that in it self could directly affect the profitability through reduced employee turnover.

As our organization already has maternity leave policy in place, establishing adoption leave policy doesn’t increase the expenses of the organization anymore than the maternity leave incurs. In essence, our organization has very little to lose and everything to gain and I hope you would consider it.

I would be delighted to meet you personally to give you any additional information that you might need and you can reach me at my number at 91234 56789

Thanking you in advance.
