Fedena users who are assigned with the role of an employee are called Fedena employees. An employee here may either belong to teaching staff or non-teaching staff in your institution. The role of an employee is automatically assigned to an individual, when the employee is admitted into the institution. When admitting an employee, the employee’s privileges are set according to the responsibilities the employee is assigned in an institution, thus creating a Privileged Employee
