When writing a letter to your employer, you must put your best foot forward. One reason to write a letter is to request a shift change. For example, if you are working an overnight shift, but would like to change to an earlier shift, your employer likely requires you to formally request such a change. Alternatively, you may need to change shifts because of health reasons. Whatever the reason, your letter should be brief and to the point.
