    Sure, that goes without saying, but they do have a legal right to request to see it. If you refuse to show them then they can take action (although few companies would be prepared to do that because of the negative publicity that would entail) but it has been known, but you are 100% right they cannot copy the letter without your permission and eve then, they are not able to disclose its contents.

    There is actually a positive take on the request to see appointment letters; employers have a duty of care. If such documentation is collected, it's easier for an employer to build a picture of an employees needs and therefore determine if adjustments or additional support is needed.
