Not much information here. About all you've told us is "it doesn't work" and "from a Mac". But, I use a key generated on my Mac all day long and can log in via SSH without any problems.

Is it possible that you generated the wrong type of key?

Or that the authorities are wrong?

For the life of me, I cannot figure out what is different between the way
they are configured and I am. This all works for me when using my key and
my profile. If I add my Mac's key to their authorized_keys file, it will
not let me connect either (yes, I used their user name).

I have a lot more system authorities than the new employee does, but I
can’t imagine why that would be the issue.

Is there a specific authority a user needs to be able to communicate with
the SSHD?

Does anyone have any other ideas?
