I have an employee who likes to just disable an account when a user leaves and then enable it and change the username to the new employee.

What are the communities thoughts on this?

I can say I am leaning towards not being a fan just for security purposes (I.e. reevaluating security permissions and group memberships with each new hire, muddying any sort of audit trail, etc).  

I don’t have a really strong reason, so looking for your thoughts.

Thanks!
