Is there any reason why an employee can refuse to let his full name be set up for his user account

    Do you mean legally refuse or just over personal privacy concerns?

    So many reasons.

    some people use "preferred" names as they're easier to pronounce.


    Others don't want to be spammed via LinkedIn, etc.


    Ask them..

    @JDMurray they said over privacy concerns.
    However we need to migrate all staffs account to our company's name e.g [email protected]

    @UnixGuy I understand that but from a security standpoint ,will that not compromise the company's HR policy and Security policies .

    Check the policy, you'd be surprised it might not be a policy, just a habit. You can always get an exemption from a policy if the person has a good reason for it.

    It's very common btw.
