Troubles A-Brewing, Please send pixies

I work for a non-profit theatre, which means we are governed by a board of directors that changes every year. There are 15 people on the board and every year some come off the board and some come on. I've worked here in my current stint since 2004, and before that from 1996 to 1998 at which point the board decided that married people shouldn't work together and gave me the boot. (My husband is the managing director here). In 2004, their Development Director developed a blood disease and their box office person quit and they desperately needed help, so I stepped in and stayed with the understanding that they wouldn't do this to me again. (Meaning fire me for being married)

Now, the upcoming board wants to enact a nepotism policy, and I see that as yet another attempt to kick me out. They have no other reason to fire me. I work over 40 hours a week for very little and I've done nothing wrong.

I hope nothing bad happens, but I'm fearing the worst. If you can spare any good thoughts or pixies, they would be most appreciated.

I hope you are wrong. If they do implement such a policy, you should be protected and grandfathered in.

It sounds like you enjoy your job and you want to keep it so I hope you do. But if you are let go, it sounds like you could easily find something that would be a little more stable, pay a bit better and with an employer who appreciates your skills.

Pixies that what you want happens.

Ugh. You should be grandfathered in. Those people suck if you aren't.

We have that policy here, but it's seems to be easily subverted. There are currently two couples working here. Apparently, as long as you aren't in the same department, it seems to be OK. We have about 50 employees in the building.

PS. My DH and I worked together here years ago too.

I agree with the others, a policy like this one should not be retroactive. You saved their bacon and are clearly dedicated to supporting the theater. Hope that this is all a misunderstanding.
