Thank you for using JustAnswer.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. Yes, generally speaking it is against the law. Can you tell me how many employees the employer has? And what are they doing to target him?

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.
