Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Did employer break any laws by not keeping the work agreement?
Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago
Under the ADA, an employer cannot discriminate a person because of their disability. This applies during the interview process and afer employment. In your case, if the employer knew or should have known that your meds were to treat a disability, and then revoked a job offer, and you have reason to believe that the Employer did this because of your disability, then it is against the law.

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.
