I have a class" Employee" and DBcontext : ChinookModel (.Net 4.5) , however when I try to create compiled query it gives the following error : ( Any help is appreciated, Thanks in advance )

The type 'Chinook.ChinookModel' cannot be used as type parameter 'TArg0' in the generic type or method 'System.Data.Entity.Core.Objects.CompiledQuery.Compile<TArg0,TArg1,TResult>(System.Linq.Expressions.Expression<System.Func<TArg0,TArg1,TResult>>)'. There is no implicit reference conversion from 'Chinook.ChinookModel' to 'System.Data.Entity.Core.Objects.ObjectContext'.
C:\Users\Bond009\documents\visual studio 2013\Projects\Chinook\Chinook\DAL\Queries.cs
I am using the following code to create LINQ complied query:

namespace Chinook
    public class StaticQueries
        static readonly Func<ChinookModel, int, IQueryable<Employee>> getemployeebyid =
           CompiledQuery.Compile<ChinookModel, int, IQueryable<Employee>>
           ((ctx, tempid) => from c in ctx.Employees
                             where c.EmployeeId == tempid
                             select c);

====================Employee Class ======================

    public partial class Employee
        public Employee()
            Customers = new HashSet<Customer>();
            Employee1 = new HashSet<Employee>();

        public int EmployeeId { get; set; }

        public string LastName { get; set; }

        public string FirstName { get; set; }

        public string Title { get; set; }

        public int? ReportsTo { get; set; }

        public DateTime? BirthDate { get; set; }

        public DateTime? HireDate { get; set; }

        public string Address { get; set; }

        public string City { get; set; }

        public string State { get; set; }

        public string Country { get; set; }

        public string PostalCode { get; set; }

        public string Phone { get; set; }

        public string Fax { get; set; }

        public string Email { get; set; }

        public virtual ICollection<Customer> Customers { get; set; }

        public virtual ICollection<Employee> Employee1 { get; set; }

        public virtual Employee Employee2 { get; set; }

=====================ChinookModel - Dbcontext =====================

public partial class ChinookModel : DbContext
        public ChinookModel()
            : base("name=Chinook")

        public virtual DbSet<Album> Albums { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<Artist> Artists { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<Customer> Customers { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<Employee> Employees { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<Genre> Genres { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<Invoice> Invoices { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<InvoiceLine> InvoiceLines { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<MediaType> MediaTypes { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<Playlist> Playlists { get; set; }
        public virtual DbSet<Track> Tracks { get; set; }

        protected override void OnModelCreating(DbModelBuilder modelBuilder)
                .HasMany(e => e.Albums)
                .WithRequired(e => e.Artist)

                .HasMany(e => e.Invoices)
                .WithRequired(e => e.Customer)

                .HasMany(e => e.Customers)
                .WithOptional(e => e.Employee)
                .HasForeignKey(e => e.SupportRepId);

                .HasMany(e => e.Employee1)
                .WithOptional(e => e.Employee2)
                .HasForeignKey(e => e.ReportsTo);
        public int ThisID { get; set; }
