Some Stack Exchange sites seem to be more sensitive to country and sometimes states in countries like the US. I think Workplace.SE and Law.SE are two of them.
Here are two sample question, and lots more exist (ad nauseam?): Is it better to have a 10 year gap or a bad reference? and Side-stepping age discrimination with graduation year.
Please require a country tag for all questions on the site. Or at least all questions that originate on Workplace.SE.
