Password erase

Good afternoon. on a working laptop, an employee put a password on the ssd (when the computer turns on, the hard drive asks for a password before loading the BIOS). Now he’s quit and we can’t use the laptop. The information on the disk is not important to us. How can I completely erase the password disk so that it can be used further.
