    My boyfriend works and rents from the same person. At work he is paid cash or under the table as they call it and there is no insurance or anything paid on his behalf or for him by the employer. This past January he fell off the truck at work and broke his elbow. He was out of work for two months without pay. Thus he fell behind in the rent. He went to talk to his employer about payment for medical bills, etc. and was told (very sarcastically)that he should continue coming to work and just find something to do at work with one arm. Now that his arm has healed he has returned to work. The man is now withholding money from his earnings as rent payments despite my boyfriend's approval. Is this legal?
