put in my two weeks and now they wont pay me my vacation or commision

I am a license insurance producer in ma and was working at an agency for almost two yearso, I had accrued a year in vacation that I was going to take in june, and I was paid hourly + commission for the policies I wrote. when I formally gave them my two weeks they asked me to leave and are now refusing to pay me my vacation time and will not pay me my commission unless I sign a noncompete now after the fact of working there. I was never asked to sign one will working there until now after I resign and ask for the money that is rightfully mine. is this legal?

Sounds wrong to me. Contact the Massachusetts Attorney General's Wage and Hour section through 617-727-3465 or the Attorney General's website to file a complaint and get further advice. Do not sign the non-compete. The non-compete would be invalid anyway since they already owe you the money. Your employer needs a better lawyer.
Contact the Mass Bar Association to see if there is a lawyer in your area who will take the ("wage and hour") case.
