As a diagnostic evaluation of your writing skills, provide a well-organized, multi-paragraph writing sample that addresses the topic below. Your writing sample should be professional in language and tone. You work for ABC Corporation. Your company currently provides all full-time employees with a total of 15 days off during the calendar year. The time off is broken down as follows:
- 5 sick days (to be used anytime, without advance notice, but using two or more consecutive days requires documentation from a medical professional)
- 10 vacation days (must be scheduled and approved in advance)
Your boss, Jane Smith, has suggested changing the time off policy to allow employees to use their 15 days in any way they want, as sick days, personal days, and vacation time. Under this proposal, employees could take a personal or sick day any time they want, for two consecutive days, without advance notice or medical documentation. Additionally, employees would only need to schedule vacation in advance if they plan on taking off three or more consecutive days. Your boss has asked everyone on your team to consider this change.
Write an email to Jane expressing your opinion about the time off policy. Support your reasoning with examples and facts. Your finished email should be two-three paragraphs or 300-450 words.
