The way the employer can use these functions depends on the Approval Flow setting which are the Non-Approval Flow and the Maker/Checker Approval Flow. The Approval Flow setting determines the role of i‑Akaun (Employer) users known as Administrator, Maker and Checker.

The Maker/Checker Approval Flow is a security feature introducing a two-level workflow approval authority in which users with the role of Maker and Checker provides employers with checks and balances to ensure secured online submission.
