Depends on where you're running the code, but assuming it's a post-function which provides "current issue" for immediate use, then

def myCf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("EMployee")

def cfValue = issue.getCustomFieldValue ( customField )

And then, as you will have had options returned, cfValue.getName() for it as a string.

Hi Nic Brough,

          Yes we are using Post function.  we have tried 'cfValue.getName()' but it is showing error.

Attached screenshot please check and let me know where is the mistake in my code.
