There is obviously much more to this than is mentioned above. One of the expectations of working is that you will be there. Your employer has a right to that expectation barring illness, etc. It appears your question may be more applicable for a family law lawyer, you do not indicate if still married, separated, etc. You may consider a temporary restraining order however, there are down sides to that as well. In sum, your situation is much more complex than to answer here. I suggest you contact an appropriate attorney.
You may need to get an order of protection against your husband to keep him from contacting you, so that you can show up for work. It is an at work state, so your employer can generally let you go for any reason. Contact an experienced family law attorney.

My first thought is to get an order of protection against your spouse. Then I would reach out to an employment law attorney to discuss whether or not you have any options to protect your position at work as that is not a family law matter.
