A job appointment letter is a document issued by a company to an individual formally inviting him/her to join as an employee, to fill a particular position in the organization. Prior to issuing the job appointment letter, the individual is interviewed and tested to ensure that he/she has the necessary qualifications to be hired. For this reason, an appointment letter will comprise various information such as job requirements or job description, salary details, joining date, and in some cases, company rules and regulations.
Is an appointment letter legally binding?
Yes, an appointment letter is legally binding, once an employee signs and accepts the position.
However, if the job does not materialize, the employee cannot seek any legal recourse against the employer.
Can an employer rescind a job offer after an employee signs the appointment letter?
Yes. An employer may rescind a job offer based on legally valid reasons. If not, the employee may sue or take legal action against the employer.
What is the difference between a basic appointment letter and a contract?
A basic appointment letter is a formal employment offer that provides basic details about the job, and expectations.
A contract, on the other hand, provides a full scope of the employment, including responsibilities, duration, and type.
