Since you live in the building, it sounds like you were both a tenant and an employee, so your landlord/employer is supposed to have followed the laws regarding tenants (as well as employees).

But the tenant also has to follow the regulations and this alone may not be sufficient cause for you to move out without notice. You can write to the LL to tell them that they have been violating the residential laws regarding entry without notice, and that this must stop immediately. You can also have the repair costs for damages estimated and send them a bill for repair to the damage that they are responsible for, also send them a copy of the receipt for the recent purchase. If they do not respond favourably then you can go to the housing court to claim the damages, and request permission to move out without notice, on the basis that the LL has been violating the applicable laws. If they fire you as a result of this you can also go to the small claims court to request severance pay since it was all no fault of your own.
