Dear Mr. Ramandeep Kaur,

I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to inform you of a situation that regrettably affects my start date with your company. As you know, I was scheduled to begin my new position as a Marketing Coordinator next Monday. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, I am unable to commence my employment as planned.

The primary issue I am facing is related to my health. Last week, I was diagnosed with a condition that requires immediate and comprehensive treatment, involving a series of appointments and a short period of recovery. Understandably, this situation has come as a shock to me, and it necessitates a temporary delay in my professional commitments to ensure a full recovery.


Furthermore, there has been an unexpected delay in the relocation process. The moving company handling my transition has encountered significant logistical issues, leading to a postponement of my move. This has compounded the difficulty in being ready to start my new role on the previously agreed date.

Given these challenges, I believe it would be prudent to delay my start date to ensure I can fully commit to my role and responsibilities with the energy and dedication they deserve. I am confident that I will recover quickly and resolve the moving issues shortly. Therefore, I propose a new start date of four weeks from now, which I hope will provide ample time to navigate these unforeseen problems effectively.

I am very much looking forward to joining the team and contributing to our shared goals. I deeply appreciate your understanding and flexibility regarding this matter. Please let me know if this proposed arrangement works for you or if there is any additional information or documentation you require from me at this time.

Thank you for your understanding and support. I am eager to start this new chapter in my career with your organization as soon as possible.

Warm regards,
