Reproducing the Issue

Able to save the Personal Information portlet with no data in Email information and/or Address in Add new Employee Wizard.


This is expected behavior.


There is no way to prohibit users from clicking the 'bin' icon to remove the portlets from the wizard entirely & then proceeding with no Email information or Address information.
