You don't.  AFAIK, the only way would be to get everyone to restart their
name servers.  Not likely.  Talk to your lawyer and the cops and make the
disgruntled ex-employee pay.  I've seen people do this sort of thing out
of stupidity (typo an address, and reload the zone with an inconveniently
long TTL), but it's a great way to screw someone if you can pull it off.
