The Pay Rise Request Letter must be sent to your employer. It should generally be sent to your manager or a member of the management or HR teams. This person is known as the ‘recipient’.

The safest way to serve the Pay Rise Request Letter is to deliver it in person or, failing this, to send it by courier, post or email.

  • In person: hand the Letter to the recipient personally.

  • Post: if you are posting the Letter, it is recommended that you use recorded delivery and that you keep a copy of the proof of posting and delivery.

  • Email: request a ‘read receipt’ as proof of delivery.

Keep a copy of your Pay Rise Request Letter

If you post or hand deliver the Letter, keep a copy of the signed Letter that was sent along with anything else you included with it. If you email the Letter, keep a copy of the email that was sent and any attachments together with any ‘read receipts’.

A copy of the Pay Rise Request Letter will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.
