Writing a formal request letter is one of the best ways to ask your employer to raise your salary. Whenever you work in a company for at least one year then you will definitely get some experience and knowledge related to your work, which makes you complete your job responsibilities in a timely way without any mistakes.
Generally companies don’t want to miss the experienced employees, because it takes so much time to train the new employees.
So if you have completed one year in your job and still the company is not giving any increment in your salary then you can write a request letter to your boss to review your salary.
