It sounds like you want auditing. It depends on what UNIX variant your using. Typically this is not enabled by default and requires manual configuration and maintenance. This could contain an audit trail of all files the user touched.

an alternative would be to examine the output of last/who/w/etc..., the users shell history and system logs might be sufficient for your requirements though.

process accounting might be an option also.
