All organizations, however large or small, need to keep certain records, some because the law requires them, and some for internal purposes. For instance, keeping records of hours worked by most workers (for the purposes of the implementation of the Working Time Regulations), and pay rates will enable employers to monitor legislation compliance. Every employer also needs records of workers joining them, their job title, pay and so on. A web-based employee management system is an online system that enables organizations to upload information about their employees so that their identity can always be verified. And the basic information about them and their work description can be easily managed. It is an electronic record keeping system that will aid the organization not to be dependent on flat files all the time for managing employee or personnel information. it is an effective means of electronic record management. The goal of web-based employee records Management is to provide professional assistance to state and local government agencies, public and private institutions in managing the records and information required to take care of the institution in an effective and cost-efficient manner. It is an electronic record management system .
This chapter introduce the web-based design and implementation of employees record system. It presents the statement of problems, aims and objectives of the study, significance of the study, scope of the study, organization of the research and definition of terms.
