Are you sure the incoming request contains an "Aruba_Essid_Name" 
attribute? According to the dictionary I have here, it should have 
dashes and not underscores:

share/dictionary.aruba:ATTRIBUTE    Aruba-Essid-Name            5 string

However, there's a better way to do what you're doing: separate 
authentication (who you are) from authorization (what you are allowed to 

In the sql tables, you can do this using groups.

(1) Make each of your employee accounts members of an 'employee' group 
(insert into the usergroup_table which is by default called "radusergroup")

(2) Add your authorization rules into unlang, in a policy entry called 
from your authorize{} or post-auth{} section

wireless_authz {
     if (&Aruba-Essid-Name == "SSID-EMP" && not (&SQL-Group[*] == 
'employee')) {

(It might be possible to hack something together using the radgroupcheck 
table, but the unlang approach is simple and explicit)
