In this case,Ā TeamsĀ andĀ DepartmentsĀ cannot be deleted, because employees with theĀ status inactiveĀ are still assigned to them. In order to solve this, in theĀ employee listĀ the columnsĀ status, team, andĀ departmentĀ can be added. Furthermore, inactive employees can be displayed by setting theĀ statusĀ filter correspondingly, and the information regarding theĀ departmentĀ orĀ teamĀ can be removed or edited. This way, no employee will be assigned to theĀ departmentĀ orĀ team anymore, andĀ it will be possible to delete it.

Best,

Andrea
