The SET (O) guidelines only ask for the pay slip and bank statement (showing that the pay is transferred to your account) to be within one calendar month on the day of application.

I have successfully used a letter from the employer which was about a month old.

I think, employer letter should be within one calendar month i.e., 30 days to the date of your appointment.
