Sanjay's answer is better than the original, but it still isn't right. It also adds the information that the duties are not to be assigned "to us."
.

We would request that you not assign any duties.
.

I am not sure why the conditional "would" is in the sentence. Perhaps it is in answer to "What would you request if something happened?" If there isn't really a condition to be met, then the word can be removed.
.

We request that you not assign any duties.

Would is not necessary here, although you may want to add it to seem polite. Also, you should include information about whom the duties should not be assigned to and under which circumstances. Try one of the following:

 

We kindly request that you to do not assign duties to anyone until we return from vacation.

 

For the forseeable future, we kindly request that you to do not assign any duties to us.

 

For the next several months, we kindly request that you to do not assign any duties to the team.

 

Until further notice, we kindly request that you to do not assign any duties to team members.
