ABSTRACT
This research aims to explore the direct relationship between the illegitimate task assignment and employee well-being. The relationship between the variables illegitimate task assignment and HR information management systems was also explored in this research. Moreover, this research also aims to explore the mediating role of HR information management systems among the proposed direct relationship of this research. To achieve the aim of this research the data was collected from the 319 employees of 13 software companies in Hunan Province, China. This research findings reveal a significant impact of illegitimate task assignment on employee well-being, mirroring the stress, job discontent, and heightened burnout documented in previous studies. HR information systems were discovered to both mediate and moderate the relationship, mitigating the negative effects of illegitimate work assignments. When properly overseen, these systems provide employees with valuable tools to deal with work-related difficulties. This study utilizes the Job Demand-Resource (JD-R) model to enhance comprehension of organizational dynamics and provide practical guidance for firms seeking to promote employee well-being in the modern workplace.
