There is no specific law regarding performa of an appointment letter. Some labour legislations provide for issuance of an appointment letter. It is useful from employer's point of view to issue an appointment letter.

Nowadays it is better for the employees to receive the appointment letter.No specific law for that.but some formats are available

The format and the clauses to be incorporated in an appointment order depends on the company`s model / certified standing orders.

As far as I know, there is no law governing this.

Your company`s Standing Orders / Company Policy / Industry Practices should be considered in the clauses in an appointment order
