I agree, and moreover, I would say that you shouldn't go to *anyone*. If
you think a law has been violated, contact an attorney. Otherwise,
either start looking for a new job or just leave. No matter what you do,
don't complain to anyone at your old company, and don't say negative
things about your old company when you start looking for a new one.

If you decide to leave before you have another job, just make up an
excuse for doing it, something that makes you sound interesting and
thoughtful: "I wanted to spend some time with a relative who was dying."
Who's gonna check? Always tell people that your old company was good,
but that you wanted new challenges. It doesn't matter whether it's true
or not.

As they say, don't burn your bridges. In fact, say something nice even
when you're not required to say anything at all.

DO NOT go to your HR department. I have had two instances where I asked
HR for help with a difficult boss, and the HR person went straight to
the boss to tattle on me. The Human Resources people do not work for
you, they work for the company, and are not going to rock the boat.
