Dear [Manager's Name],

As we previously discussed, I am writing you to formally request that my number of working hours be reduced to eight hours. Recently I have been working two to three extra hours a day without overtime pay. These extra hours have been due to completing tasks that another department is responsible for. However, if this extra work does not get done then I cannot do my job when I come into work in the morning.

I would also like to formally request that I receive overtime pay in the future for any additional hours that I work beyond my required forty hours per week.
