I have a new boss who is causing much stress, not just to me, but to everyone in the workplace. I can see it in everyone's face every day. The boss stays in the office and does not talk to us much. He makes random, sweeping changes to everything, from one week to the next. Half of the workplace has quit. Some are blaming new health problems on the stress. One has fallen very ill.
I am not in a position to leave, as I signed a contract before the new boss came on. Leaving would destroy my career. I am concerned the stress will lead to health issues.
How do I document this? Should I notify my boss every time I find something stressful, explaining why the situation causes stress (e.g. being punished for things out of my control), so they've had an opportunity to be informed of my concern? Or do I quietly document it in a log?
