Sample letter inviting employee to discuss possible early pay rise

When a valued employee requests an early pay rise, they have usually been thinking about asking for several weeks. A good request contains plenty of information as to why they think they are entitled to more money. If you tend to agree that they have a case, then invite them to a meeting to discuss the matter further.
