I very much doubt that your employee is violating his parole by working for you.  One of the things that people on parole and probation have to do is be employed in a lawful job, so they can support themselves without committing another crime, and they usually have to tell their parole/probation officer where they are working and what they are doing.  If your employee's p.o. didn't want him in the job he has, the p.o. would have told him so.

Another condition, usually, is that the person has to report to his p.o. within a very short period of time if he's arrested.  If he's charged with violating parole, he should talk to a criminal defense lawyer. One place he can look for defense counsel is our website, http://attorneypages.com
