There are numerous government websites dealing with employee rights, and the Attorney General has a Hotline that MA residents can call to get information about their rights on the job. In other threads on this forum, readers will find detailed discussions on the difference between at-will employment and contract employment, and how those two broad categories of employment are treated differently under MA law.This is a key distinction because, with many exceptions (also discussed in the forum) employers are free to terminate at will employees for any legal and non-discriminatory reason.(g) Unless otherwise prohibited by law, a prescription shall be: (1) written in ink, indelible pencil or by other means on a tamper resistant form consistent with federal requirements for Medicaid; or (2) transmitted electronically; and (3) signed by the prescriber.A prescription may be transmitted electronically with the electronic signature and electronic instructions of the prescriber, and shall be transmitted directly from the prescriber to the pharmacy designated by the patient without alteration of the prescription information, except that third-party intermediaries may act as conduits to route the prescription from the prescriber to the pharmacy.“It seems as though there hasn’t been any appetite to do anything about this,” Senator Cynthia Stone Creem, a Newton Democrat, said.“Some of my colleagues fear they’ll offend people by going after these laws because many of them deal with morality.”Representative Byron Rushing, a Boston Democrat who along with Creem has cosponsored the repeal legislation, said the notion that antiquated laws are not enforced was proved wrong by Governor Mitt Romney after the 2003 Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage.As you read this synopsis, if you see terms you do not understand or that you would like more information about, just use our search tool to find more in-depth discussions.
