TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
You really should consider approaching your boss about these concerns.
Considering the scenario that you described he/she could be trying to do you
a favor by keeping you working on busy work to not draw layoff attention.
I've seen an entire art department work as file clerks for several weeks in
the name of busy work.
Just try to touch base with your boss and see if it's a lack of respect
problem or just a matter of their wanting some value out of the time they
are paying you for.
