Horrible boss. Where to turn for help with no HR dept?
Our entire staff feels trapped, sick, and bullied every day. Our newish president is a narcissist with a psychopathic personality (all ideas must be his, tyrant, bully) whose behavior towards us includes rage, blame, lack of communication, inappropriate texts, and excessive drinking,. All which leaves us walking on eggshells - never knowing if he will be in a good mood or a bad mood. He picks on someone diff every week. He makes someone cry everyday. Senior leadership either follows him like puppies or is too scared to challenge him. We do not have an HR dept. The only oversight is a volunteer board of directors. But we don't know if any of them can be trusted to keep our anonymity. None of us can afford to lose our jobs as retribution for speaking up. Yet, we have no one in our corner. Is the answer to just find a new job? 80% of staff is looking. Any suggestions to save what was once a great organization and our sanity? Has anyone dealt with this?

Should I Disclose Pregnancy at 6 weeks due to health issues?
I am 6 weeks, 3 days pregnant, and high risk due to my age and multiple serious health issues for which I have approved intermittent FMLA for time out of office for illness and doctor appointments. Several months ago in August, my boss questioned my time out of the office even though it is FMLA approved and asked if I "could just take a longer 2-3 week medical leave to deal with my issues". Since that time my boss continues to make false accusations about my behavior and my performance to build a case for terminating me...I seriously think they want to get rid of me because I continue to sporadically miss work due to FMLA covered reasons and since they know they can't fire me for that they are now going after "behavior and performance issues." Due to my high risk pregnancy, I will now have even more time away from the office for doctor appointments, and will likely have to apply for more intermittent FMLA which won't go over well. My past 9 years of performance reviews at this company have been good (always meeting expectations), but to my surprise this past week my boss shared I am "not even meeting expectations", which is our lowest performance ranking and grounds for termination. Although I have asked, she cannot and will not provide me any dates of occurrences or detailed information about my supposed behavioral or performance issues, and is piling on a long list of new expectations to my role to seemingly break me. I have previously suffered from recurrent miscarriage (unknown to my employer). I feel paralyzed now by what is happening at work and am no longer sleeping or eating the last 2 weeks due to the stress I am now under. I am very worried, especially since it is still so early and such an important time while my fetus is forming. I have several appointments with my primary physician and a psychiatrist this week to see if someone can write me out on an extended medical leave due to work stress during this very important time. Has anyone had any success doing this in this type of situation? Thank you!
