Answer to company is offering early voluntary retirenment for individuals with ten years or more and age 55 and older for senior mgrs at regional level and above-why are they using this criteria and is it legal.This is legal because participation is entirely voluntary. I can't speculate why they are doing it, but it obviously has some cost-reduction advantage.

Answer to I work as a medical livery driver in Massachusetts and work 60hrs a week at 14 dollars an hour but no overtime. Is this right? I did research and i am really not a independent contractor nor sub contractor because i am supervised after every stop and toldThis can be very complicated. The simplest way to handle it is to file a complaint with the Attorney General, who enforces Wages law. They have a Fair Labor Hotline at 617-727-3465, and they can explain your rights and how to submit a complaint.

Answer to Non-compete Agreement in MAAbsolutely. Although there have been attempts to change the law, non-competes are still legal in Massachusetts. You basically signed a new non-compete with your new employer. Non-competes are enforceable in Massachusetts. It might not be enforceable in California (only).
