Our expert says:
Sounds like a self-fulfilling prophesy ! Clearly he has no confidence in himself and his own ability to attract and keep staff, and the foolish way he is reacting to this, is increasing the chances that his beliefs will prove true. If someone really wants and needs to go to an interview, it's not difficult for them to find a way to do so, so he cannot prevent that. But by being petty and mean-spirited, and interfering in your abilities to do your job properly, he is training people to be sensibly resentful and sneaky.
Such an insecure and incompetent boss is unlikely to run a company that will remain successful or even viable ( or even open ) - start looking for alternative jobs, whatever way works.
