So, after posting this thread, Darling Husband and I both decided it would be best that I leave my position. I left messages for 2 of the board members (Chair and Vice Chair) to call me ASAP about an urgent matter. When I didn’t receive a call back (after calling multiple times throughout the afternoon and evening) I emailed the Chair a letter explaining what happened earlier that day, that things have not improved, but have gotten worse in the office since the board spoke with my boss, and that I was attaching my letter of resignation and 2 week notice. I also stated that I would drop off my keys with a copy of the letter at the office that evening as I would not be returning because I was afraid I would be verbally and possibly physically abused by my boss, considering what has happened with past employees (she threatened the last employee to quit with a pair of scissors, along with calling her down and such). I did receive a phone call back from the Vice Chair on the Monday. She was very sympathetic, said I would get paid for the full 2 weeks and vacation pay owing and hoped the best for me. She did also mention the board is aware there’s a pattern with her. I never heard back from the Chair.
3 weeks later, its come to my attention that the boss has been telling other employees that I was “let go”. My ROE says “Quit” and I handed in my letter of resignation without her even having the chance to speak to me. I have not spoken to the employees that were told this as I’m not sure what I want to do yet. One part of me says to just leave it, drop it, and move on entirely. The other; call these employees, get the confirmation. If it is the truth, contact the board again and ask that this matter be dealt with, as I do not want my reputation to be sullied, as where I live has a small-town mentality and word will get around about these lies. And who knows what else she is lying about. DH is ready to go to the office himself, with our cop friend, and tell her to stop or we will take legal action.
With that said, should I do something? Or should I just leave it?
