My boss shamed me publicly in an email sent to the entire office. I am a marketing director and have handled multiple important campaigns, but I got sick and he called me "weak" and told my coworkers that they should avoid being like me. Huh.

Document everything. Are there any other incidents like this of note? Write them down as well. Write down the dates you were sick. Save when you notified your boss of your sickness. If this continues you may want to speak to an employment lawyer about it

Could be it was just a bad "joke" that didn't come across as such through text. Also, some people don't have the best sense of humor so I'm willing to give this one the benefit of the doubt

Not ok, at all. I agree with the other response; document everything. Has your boss done things like this to you or others before?

It's a good time of year to look for a job where your work is genuinely appreciated, and talk to a lawyer. Comments like this should not be tolerated, especially if they are made to the entire office.
