    • Copy of pay stub showing leave or time off was confirmed paid/issued to you
    • Signed and dated official document from your employer that must show:
      • Your company letterhead including a good contact phone number
      • The start date and approximate end date of your leaves - (if future date, you will need to contact us on the day their leave or time off starts)
      • Confirmation that your employer is still paying you while on leave or paid time off (Confirmation that this indeed is a paid leave)
      • The number of hours you work in a pay period (to know how many hours will be added for the days on leave)
