I would try the following:
  1. Go into the BIOS, and ensure that it has no odd settings (BIOS password, device boot order, etc.)
  2. Get a thumb drive (8 GB or more)
  3. Go to another Windows 10 computer and download the Windows Media Creator
  4. Run this, and create a Windows 10 installation thumb drive
    Make sure that you download a version for which you have a license (e.g. don't download Windows Pro if your license is for Windows Home)
  5. Use this to boot your computer
  6. Install Windows from scratch (including a format and repartition of the hard drive)
  7. Open File Explorer, Right-click on "This PC" in the left-hand window, and select "Properties".
  8. Scroll to the bottom of the window. On the right, you will see an option to change the product key. Click this, and enter your new product key
    This should overwrite your employer's record of Windows in the BIOS and in Microsoft's servers.
  9. Lastly, go to Dell's site, download their tool that updates all Dell drivers, and run that to get their latest stuff.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
