Get your bosses to give you directions or answer your questions in writing whenever possible.  Instead of asking questions over the phone or in person, ask important questions over email so you have a paper trail.  Also, whenever you do have a conversation in person that you think your boss might be two-faced on, confirm what they told you in an email:  e.g.  “I just wanted to confirm what you told me this afternoon about …  You said …  Is that right?”  This isn’t going to magically solve all your problems, but it will give you some back-up in case they try to bring something against you.

Try not to listen to the rumor mill at work. A lot of times, someone else that is in jeopardy of losing their job will try to make things bad for those that aren’t in jeopardy. I know it is hard not to speculate, especially with all the layoffs, but until you hear it from your boss, I would just try to ignore it.
