Convince me the is worth keeping.

It seems too vague to really matter, since most questions here are about employees, and the tag can't really provide any meaningful additional information.

To save you some searching time, here is the full tag wiki:

I believe a tag as general as "employees" is useless.

Since this is workplace.stackexchange, "employees" is implied in pretty much every question. You might as well have a "work" tag.

If tags are to be of any real benefit, they must be discriminatory. That is, selecting a tag must exclude a majority of unrelated questions. I can't see that happening if "employee" were used as defined in the tag wiki.

    Tag removal is a good time to go through and clean up some questions. Scrolling to the bottom of this list of results shows you the worst questions with this tag, if anyone wants to go through some of them.
