You can delete an employee from the database but only when there are no transactions on their record and if you have permission to do so.
If there are transactions, the system will not allow you to delete the record. In this situation, make the employee Inactive to maintain the accuracy of the transaction-based reports.
(AE) You cannot delete a currently logged in employee.
Select Contacts > Open > Employee on the toolbar. The Find Employees page opens.
In the Search for field, enter the employee’s code, employee’s name or part thereof.
If you leave the Search for field blank, all employee records are returned by the search.
