CHAPTER I

THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Introduction

According to Henry Taub (1949) biometrics is automated method of recognizing a person based on a physiological or behavioral characteristic. Examples of human traits used for biometric recognition include fingerprints, speech, face, retina, iris, handwritten signature, hand geometry, and wrist veins. Biometric recognition can be used in identification mode where the biometric system identifies a person from the entire enrolled population by searching a database for a match.

A system also can be used in verification mode where the biometric system authenticates a person's claimed identity from his/her previously enrolled pattern. Tokens, such as smart cards, magnetic stripe cards, physical keys, and so forth, can be lost, stolen, duplicated, or left at home. Passwords can be forgotten, shared, or observed. There is a great deal of scientific data supporting the idea that "no two fingerprints are alike."Newer methods, even those with a great deal of scientific support, such as

DNA-based genetic matching sometimes do not hold up in court.

Another key aspect is how user-friendly is the system.  Most people find it acceptable to have their pictures taken by video cameras or to speak into a microphone.

When discussing the accuracy of a biometric system, it is often beneficial to talk about the equal-error rate or at least to consider the false-acceptance rate and false-rejection rate together. For many systems, the threshold can be adjusted to ensure that virtually no impostors will be accepted. Unfortunately, this often means an unreasonably high number of authorized users will be rejected. To summarize, a good biometric system is one that is low cost, fast, accurate, and easy to use.

Today, the use of technology has been an effective tool on improving such kind of payroll system.   In this study, the use of Visual Basic 6.0 and access database will help to improve the efficiency of the payroll in the Gabaldon Municipal Employees.

Significance of the Study

The significance of the Payroll System using biometrics for employees is to have the right to some degree of privacy in the work place. But that right is not absolute. Employee’s privacy protections must often give way to the employer’s right to conduct legitimate business functions. Thus, while all biometric systems invade employees’ privacy to some degrees, their use in the workplace is not necessarily illegal. For the accountant, it has to advance him in computation and imaging and for municipal heads, it would let them make sure that all the employees will check in or out. This is because there are also employees that stay on the company premises after check out time and benefit to surf the internet chat or use the phone lines with ease without anyone around. The application of database on the automated payroll system can make the employees more responsible.

To the Employees. They have the right to some degree of privacy in the work place. But that right is not absolute. Employees privacy protection must often give way to the employer’s right to conduct legitimate business functions. Thus, while all biometric systems invade employees’ privacy to some degree. Their use in the workplace is not necessarily illegal. To the Accountant. It advances him in computation and imaging. Reduce inconsistencies and errors associated with manual time tracking. Reduce costly payroll and data entry errors. To the Municipal Head. It will make sure that all the employees will check in or out because there are also employees who stay in the company premises after check out time and benefit to surf the internet chat or use the phone lines with ease without anyone around.
