Some workplaces do have a requirement where employees have to live within a particular radius, within a particular county, etc.
When I was at my previous job, I had to live within 20 miles of downtown, so that I could quickly respond in case of emergency. Of course, no one thought to tell me that before I closed on a house that was 40 miles away, since my husband got a job in a town in the opposite direction.
They were able to make an exception for me. But, yeah, certain jobs have residency requirements, although a discussion with HR might be able to get around them.
