Answer

You can use the ListDel request to delete employees (and other List type objects like customers, vendors, etc).

From the OSR:

ListDel - Delete a list object

ou can only delete a list item from a QuickBooks company file if the file is open in single-user mode. If the file is open in multiuser mode, your application will receive an error. (This restriction does not apply to deleting or voiding transaction objects.)
