Sample request letter for incentive payment

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am writing to request an incentive payment for my recent work in a project for the companies HR department. The billboards designed were done on my own time and to help resolve employee shortages.

By reviewing my personnel record, you will see that I am an hourly employee, not salary. I logged over 50 hours of extra work on this project, all of which I have not been reimbursed for.

While I don’t mind helping out a bit with projects and extra assignments, my hours have exceeded an acceptable amount of time to donate without payment.

Because of the shortages at the company, many people are working overtime and longer hours.

I knew how important it was, to make sure that these signs were done, so HR can begin to promote our company at job fairs.

I know that salary employees don’t have a say, but I am hourly and I have not been compensated for all this extra time.

After working more than weeks’ worth of extra time to help the company out, I feel that I should receive an incentive payment. I have been with the company for a long time, 12 years to be exact.

I look forward to discussing this with you soon. I can be reached by phone anytime at 555-895-5987.
