Hi there

What you are requesting is a salary review with your manager - not a complaint.

I do not know the circumstances as to your employment situation - BUT - make sure that you are certain of your facts before sending this letter to your manager by checking and clarifying below first.

  1. Your salary may not have increased because of an adminstrative over-sight on the manager to send the approval to the HR department OR

  2. Your performance was such that your manager it did not think it warranted an increase in salary. Salaries increases are conditional and subject to overall employee performance.
If your case relates to point 2 because of performance, then you will need to provide and present very solid evidence that during the course of the past year you have met or exceeded the job requirements BEFORE going into discussions with your manager.

Dear Mr Jones

Re: Salary Review

With reference to our meeting that was held on Friday, 10 March, 2010, where we discussed and reviewed my performance with the company over the past year, I have yet to receive any official notification as to which salary increment I will be assigned.

I referred this matter to our Human Resources department and I was advised by them that any salary adjustments have to be authorised by the immediate manager.

In the absence of any salary notification I would like to arrange a time that is convenient with you so as to discuss this further and any other matters that need to be addressed.

Thank you for your attention to my request and look forward to meeting with you soon.

Yours sincerely,

panda witty 621Can you please help me write a grievance letter to my pervious employer,

Yes. If you follow some guidance for using our site.

1. Start a new thread with a new question.

2. Write a draft of your letter and post it. Then we can help you improve it.

We were told that after six months of working there will be an increment in our salary, well besides that I was even promoted. How do I approach the management ?

Dear Mam/ Sir

i completed 2 year my contract please give me some idea how to apply for salary increment

Hi there i am asking if you can help me write for me a very strong letter of complaint to my company for salary increase and promotion. I have work for the company for more than 8 years, that's since on 1/11/2012. Since then I have not been promoted or is my salary increased. Do the laws of public service allows a person an operator like to work for more than 8 years in one grade and without any salary increment?

Please help i am waiting to hear from you soon.

You need to seek a lawyer in your country who understands the laws and what companies are legally required to do. We are not lawyers, nor do we know your country, company or situation.

However, if you post a draft of your letter, we can help you by fixing the grammatical errors.
