I have a gridview tied to objectdatasource. I cannot update the database table. This is my code:

 Public Sub UpdateEmail(ByVal EmployeeId As Integer, ByVal EmployeeName As String, ByVal EmailAddress As String, ByVal Active As Boolean)
        Dim connectionString As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("BLS-MPOYNT_SQLClient").ConnectionString

        Dim con As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand()
        cmd.Connection = con
        cmd.CommandText = "UPDATE EmployeeEmail " & _
           "SET " & _
           "EmployeeID = @EmployeeID,EmployeeName = @EmployeeName,EmailAddress =@EmailAddress,Active = @Active " & _
        "where EmployeeId = @EmployeeId"

        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EmployeeName", EmployeeName)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EmailAddress", EmailAddress)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Active", Active)
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EmployeeID", EmployeeId)

        Using con

            con.Open()
            cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

        End Using

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1"  DataKeyNames="EmployeeId" runat="server" AutoGenerateColumns="false" DataSourceID="ObjectDataSource1" AutoGenerateEditButton="true">
        <Columns>
        <asp:BoundField HeaderText="EmployeeId" DataField="EmployeeId"  />
          <asp:BoundField HeaderText="EmployeeName" DataField="EmployeeName" />
          <asp:BoundField HeaderText="EmailAddress" DataField="EmailAddress"  />
          <asp:BoundField HeaderText="Active" DataField="Active" />
        </Columns>
        </asp:GridView>
   
   
        <asp:ObjectDataSource ID="ObjectDataSource1"
            runat="server" SelectMethod="GetEmailAddresses" TypeName="Email" UpdateMethod="UpdateEmail">
            <UpdateParameters>
                <asp:Parameter Name="EmployeeId" Type="Int32" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="EmployeeName" Type="String" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="EmailAddress" Type="String" />
                <asp:Parameter Name="Active" Type="Boolean" />
            </UpdateParameters>
        </asp:ObjectDataSource>
When I click on Update I receive error msg:
System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Cannot update identity column 'EmployeeId'.

What am I doing wrong? Please, help.

EmployeeId is an Identity column so cannot be updated as it is auto-generated when the record is created. The database is just trying to maintain referential integrity.
Remove it from the set list :

cmd.CommandText = "UPDATE EmployeeEmail " & _
           "SET " & _
           "EmployeeName = @EmployeeName,EmailAddress =@EmailAddress,Active = @Active " & _
        "where EmployeeId = @EmployeeId"

If there are circumstances where you would want to change the employeeid then you will have to change the column definition so it is not an identity column.
