I guess that both are available to my boss. Although I'm not sure whether I could object to that.

Maybe privacy issues do come up here. Then, however, I suppose that multiple people have to be involved in the "firing workflow". In any case, we have an extra level of abstraction: A boss initiates that workflow but may not delete data personally, and transactions on databases are issued by different administrative persons. It remains open whether they see the data they are deleting.
