I was corrected at work today that this sentence (which I worte in an email) was not proper grammer:

Please let me know what your availability is.

Is it?
It's fine.

You could have said "Please let me know your availability" but your version is fine.

How did this person suggest you correct this "error"?

Hi Barbara

What about "Please let me know when you are available"? Is this a better version?

Equally good, but no better, and the original is certainly not wrong.
