(Node.js) QuickBooks - Read an Employee

Demonstrates how to fetch the information for a specific Quickbooks employee. The employee information is fetched by Id. The employee Ids can be obtained by querying the employees and parsing the JSON that is returned.

For more information, see https://developer.intuit.com/app/developer/qbo/docs/api/accounting/all-entities/employee#read-an-employee
