Boss’s Wife Cuts My Hours Because of Jealousy

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about boss’s jealous wife: After approximately two months I was allowed to work with the other owner. Everything was going great, I was working 40 hrs a week and I loved my job. Two weeks ago, without notice or warning my hours were cut to only 16 1/2 hours.

I am a secretary for a locally owned company which has three stores. I have been there for about six months. This company has three male owners. When I was hired I was told I would not be allowed to work with one of the owners because his wife (at the time, a girlfriend) didn’t want any female employees.I  found this odd but I really needed the job.

Everything was going great, I was working 40 hrs a week and I loved my job.
