Based on the fact parent_id IS defined in hr.employee, there are 2 possibilities I can think of: the model being accessed is actually not hr.employee or the parent_id field has accidentally been removed either by other module or by someone.  Check in the PostgreSQL database in table called hr_employee whether there is a column called parent_id.  If there is, go to Settings >> Technical >> Database Structure >> Models, see if the Model hr.employee has parent_id listed as a field.  If not, try to remedy it by updating hr module.

Thanks John. now if i login as admin i can access the table, but not for other users. Do you have any idea , what the issue is?

Which table is it? Anyways, it's a typical problem, caused by the lack of Access Control List. Settings >> Technical >> Security >> Access Control List. The model that represent that table should have a read access for a certain group or globally.

Hi John .. Thanks you. changing the code to resource_id = self.pool.get('resource.resource').search(cr, uid, [('user_id','=', uid)][0] Emp_id = self.pool.get('hr.employee').search(cr, uid, [('resource_id','=', resource_id)][0] corrected my issue.
