It is becoming rapidly clear to me, partly through dating an American, partly through spending time on this site, that employee rights are very different in the US from Europe, or at least from the UK. I'm sure they are also very different from both in India, for example.
As a result, many questions have a very different answer in one country from another, because the risk of serious repercussions is very different.
Should we encourage people to clarify before answering? If so, do we not risk having multiple different questions, which appear exactly the same to the casual browser?
Or do we put up with having multiple conflicting answers, all of which are probably correct in the locale of the author, but the highest voted answer will depend much on who views it and (perhaps) at what time it was posted?
Any suggestions as to the best way to handle this?
For what it's worth, I was prompted to ask this as a result of HLGEM's answer to the office romance question, which is in stark contrast to mine but I suspect we may both be correct in our own country and the author's locale is unclear. But this is not the first example I've seen like this.
