I am working part-time in a small team, where my task is relatively isolated from the others' work.
My supervisor is currently on vacation. At the beginning of this month, an intern started working in our office, who is supervised by my boss.
My boss, who is currently on vacation, sent the intern an email telling him to ask me about the project and that I should pass on what I have worked on so far.
I do have another low-priority task remaining, but I am concerned that my boss did not inform me about this issue at all.
- Is this normal workplace procedure? Personally, I find it rather frustrating, but that might just be me.
- How can I professionally react to this issue? Should I email my supervisor now (while he is on vacation)? I would rather wait for him to come back to work, but I don't have a whole lot to do.
- Should I take precautions about being terminated/losing my job now?
(I do realize the last point might be opinion-based, please comment if you feel this is the case, and I will remove this point)
Edit: I am certain my supervisor reassigned the task to the intern because someone else from my group confirmed it.
