I've made the decision to enroll in part time evening classes to obtain a license not related to my current field. It would require me to leave my current job 1 1/2 hrs early so I plan to come in early to make up the difference. I'd like to note that the reason I decided to do this is due to COVID, my current employer decided not to return to work when we were allowed to open (she is very high risk and felt it would be safer for health reasons) and hired an associate Dr to see patients. She has repeatedly said how this is too hard, and how we're losing money and she wants to just throw in the towel and close up shop. Being that I don't have any formal education, it really made me think about what would happen to me if this actually happened, hence why I decided to enroll in school. I've explicitly expressed that going to school will not affect my work and that I wasn't planning on leaving, that I am simply planning for the future. (eventually her retirement) I even let her know how her comments have bothered me and are a big factor in my decision. She is now constantly bringing up the fact that I'm going to be leaving early and her attitude towards me has changed slightly. I have a feeling she is going to try and cut my pay. What do I do? I run her entire practice so I feel like I could call her bluff but I don't want this to blow up in my face. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
