An Appointment Letter is an official communication between an employer and a candidate who is selected for a job position. It is a legal document that confirms the appointment of the candidate for a particular job opportunity. The letter has various details about the KRA (Key Responsibility Areas) of the new candidate, remuneration, incentive structure, bonus, joining date, etc. The Appointment Letter is generally sent after the acceptance of the offer letter by the candidate. It legally binds the final communication between the organization and employee and confirms the offer made by the employer that is accepted by the candidate.
HR (Human Resources) mostly have ready templates for appointment letters that just need minor changes before proceeding.
