Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about boss believes lies:
I work in a small medical office, no HR Dept. Several coworkers have gone to the boss and told lies about me. He believes them and says I am the cause of the troubles in the office and will let me go if things don’t change. In the past he has acknowledged he knows they are liars and instigators. He will not let me defend myself in any way. What can I do?

Dear Frustrated and Hurt:
Your situation certainly doesn’t sound pleasant; and it describes many small medical offices where employees make life miserable for each other. However, looking at it from an outsider’s perspective, it seems you only have two fundamental options to choose from. Once you’ve made your choice, you can move forward with a plan of action.
