This Raise Request Letter is a document that an employee can use to request a raise from their employer so that their pay is commensurate with their experience, level of responsibility, and time spent working for the employer. While asking for a raise can be intimidating, this letter gives the employee a framework to highlight their accomplishments and lay out a clear case for why they deserve a raise at this time.
How to use this document
This letter provides a basic outline for an employee to use when requesting a raise from their employer. First, and most importantly, the letter requires that the employee explain how long they have worked for the employer and then provide a detailed description of their professional accomplishments, responsibilities, and successes during their time with the employer. The employee should be sure to include enough information about the projects they have worked on and the successful outcomes they have been a part of securing to make a strong case for why their hard work should be rewarded with a raise. The letter then has the employee explain their current salary or wage and the salary or wage they hope to receive after getting a raise. The letter automatically translates these numbers into a percentage raise so that the employer can more easily understand what the employee is asking for.
Once the employee has completed the letter, they may print it out, sign it, and deliver it to their employer. After delivering the letter, the employee may discuss the matter further with their employer in person to give a more detailed description of the accomplishments they have laid out in the Raise Request Letter.
