RE: Requesting accrued overtime pay

Dear Mr. NAME:

My name is NAME and I work in the contract department. I was requested to complete a contract for a major electronic exhibition at Conference Center on DATE.

As time was short, I needed to work overtime for three days to complete the contract so it could be signed at least one month before the date of the exhibition.

This is a formal request for payment for my extra working hours from DATE to DATE. Each of these days I worked three hours overtime to complete a project that you requested to have finished immediately.

Thank you for your kind attention to this matter. I can be reached at or PHONE NUMBER.
