If you want to apply the same rule for multiple elements with names starting with, say, "employee" you can add this code to your $(document).ready() function:
$(document).ready(function(){ 
$("input[name^=employee]").each(function(){
	$(this).rules("add", {
		required: {
		depends: function(elem){$("#person_responsible").val()=='6';}},
		messages: {
			required: "This field is required"
		}
	} );			
});
