An employer has the ability to transfer its employee. Absent an employment contract, it does not violate the law for them to assign you to a different city. If you are at will, you are free to quit if you do not wish to travel to the new city.

Sure, you can sue. Is there anyone available to pay damages? One of the problems with fly by night companies is they tend to up and vanish. A court order for you to be paid is far from you actually getting paid.

It's legal for her to do so. There is no duty of confidentiality with your employer the way there is with a doctor, lawyer, or psychologist. If you don't want people at work to know your views, don't tell them and they won't be able to tell anyone else.
