Normally, you would solve this with proper access control on system level where each logged in user has read-write access for his own files and some "boss user" can supervise the files of his employees.

I'm not sure if it is safe by any means but viewtopic.php?t=78991&p=362957#p362957 provides a little Basic library with a file-open dialog.
The idea is to have this Basic library with a hard coded file-open password while the library itself is password protected too.
