I think in the scope of this SE site they mean almost the same, and there isn't any good reason to separate them.

    I'd be more inclined to keep foreign-employment, as employment questions not related to foreign employment are probably iffy at best as far as being on-topic goes :) – Tim Post Mar 29 '14 at 15:53
  • @TimPost: your comment made me wonder wheter we might need both of them. 'employment' would mean any questions regarding working in the country where you live (which would only be on-topic if you are living abroad) and 'foreign-employment' would mean working in a country you are not normally living (like cross-border workers or posted workers). – SztupY Mar 29 '14 at 20:04
  • @SztupY Then the tag names should be different, and one of them should be something like cross-border-employment. However, cross-border workers are not really expats, are they? (That's more a question of scope than of tags IMHO. Let's make the scope clear, and the necessary tags with arise easily.) – yo' Sep 3 '14 at 8:07

    @tohecz: Cross-Border workers might face additional problems compared to locals (and sometimes also compared to "real" expats), so I'd say they are on-topic. – SztupY Sep 3 '14 at 9:35
  • Ok, then I think we can have a use for two tags. None of them should be employment though since that would be ambiguous. – yo' Sep 3 '14 at 9:49
