To trigger the emal set the dmloption for triggering email. 

public class CreateUserClass {

    public static string CreateUser (User u) {
    User newu = new User();
    newu.Alias = u.Alias; 
    newu.Email=u.Email ;
    newu.EmailEncodingKey=u.EmailEncodingKey ;
    newu.LastName=u.LastName  ;
    newu.ProfileId = u.Profileid; 
    //newu.UserType= u.UserType;       
            if(u.Id != null || String.isEmpty(u.Id)) {
                System.debug('Creating New User');
                List<User> usersl = new List<User>(); 
                Database.DMLOptions dlo = new Database.DMLOptions();
                dlo.EmailHeader.triggerUserEmail = true; 
                database.insert(usersl, dlo);

               // insert newu;
                return usersl[0].id;
            else {
                System.debug('Updating existing user');
