GUIDELINES FOR DRAFTING OF AN APPOINTMENT LETTER
An appointment letter contains the terms and conditions of employment including designation of job, emoluments, transfer, retirement age and notice period for termination or resignation.
Be it clarified at the very outset that at the time of appointment of an employee, an employer can incorporate any possible terms and conditions but not afterwards, may it be pertaining to transfer and even retirement of an employee. Hence, an appointment letter must be carefully drafted instead of postponing or even adopting any other draft or proforma since the labour laws keep on changing from time to time. Please find the guidelines in attachment.
