Several solutions are possible.

This could help:
  if onfirstrecord or
 {EMPLOYEE_NAME} <> previous({EMPLOYEE_NAME}) then 'First record in group!'

Or you could create a running total that counts records and resets when the group changes....then whenever the running total = 1, you're at the first record of the group...
