I just got a new job two weeks ago, the workplace is very formal. Before leaving for home, almost everyone asks the boss: "Can I leave?" or "Can I close?"
which I find very awkward because it seems they're being held against their will. So far I just do the work I'm assigned and each day before leaving I tell them what was completed and what is remaining. After that I just say, "I'm done for the day." And that's it.
Should I also ask like others or is their any other formal way of asking before calling it a day and heading home?
