Apology Letters

   Apology For Adding To Workload

Dear {Coworker},

I wanted to let you know ahead of time that I am going to be {on leave/vacationing/etc.} from {date} to {date}. I’ll be getting most of the work for {project} together before I go, and {other coworker} has promised to pitch in. But the truth is, some of the burden will fall to you.

I did speak with {boss} about {outside help/contractor/deadline extension} but haven’t heard back.

It’s unfortunate that we have so much to do with such a small staff. I appreciate you having my back, and I promise I would and will do the same for you.
