The proposed idea provides a solution in integrating Employer and Immigration department for the purpose of locating Employee and verifying background before recruitment. The application proposes to isolate problems of fake certificates and employment details furnished by candidates. In the present scenario the concerned employer authorizes legal consultants to provide information about the candidate and verify his credibility on the certificates submitted. The consultants then make a physical call, additionally may send their officers to the specified previous employer and verify the authenticity of the candidate. The status of the investigation is then reported to the organization for them to take a decision on appointment or refusal. The proposed system ensures that the above tasks can be easily performed by developing web applications for the organization and the immigration department, integrating them to generate candidate's previous employment details. The system requires every organization to be compulsorily registered with the immigration department. The immigration department then creates the database for the company dynamically. Whenever the company recruits employee for their organization the data is also updated to the immigration department for verification. The status of the verification is generated on the candidate name and a detailed report on his employment and activities related to all the companies are available to the recruiting organization. If the candidate is recruited his new information is updated to the immigration department. A powerful search engine is designed to locate employment details of an employee. Additionally the company information can also be tracked. The site also assists in identifying foreign nationals employed in that country.
