This question already has an answer here:
I work in a small IT business (15-20 people) as a team leader. My last pay review was 6 months ago; it’s now the start of the new financial year.
One of my team members has not continued on with his contract, meaning that his work will now fall onto the rest of us. As far as I know, the position will not be filled.
Are these suitable circumstances to ask for a raise, given that my company is now saved the expense of paying the discontinued employee?
