feeling guilty about leaving law-breaking boss, asking for a far-off raise, and more

Ask A Manager

My boss is breaking laws and promises but I feel guilty about leaving. The reason he gave me is that he can’t afford to pay the necessary taxes for a W-2 employee. I’m also afraid that potential employers would see that I quit after 4 months and think I’m a flake. All of these are illegal (well, the harassment might not be, if the company is too small to be covered by harassment laws), and big deals.
