Good morning. The answer is complicated and depends on if you signed a contract with a non compete clause. If so, their right to block your future jobs would depend on the contract terms.
If there was no contract, then their influence in your job hunt could be unlawful. However, interfering with a former employee's career is a tort and would require hard evidence and a court filing. The easiest way to attempt a resolution is to ask the employer what they were asked and what that have told your future prospective employers. Sometimes, it's easier and less costly to talk prior to resorting to your legal options. I hope this helps.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
