I've been working from home once a week for about a year now.
Just this week, my supervisor asked me to send in a progress report on the days that I work from home.
The only two people consistently working from home are my direct supervisor and I. Am I able to ask if this is now a new company practice?
I'm specifically concerned if they think I'm slacking off during my work-from-home days. Should I confront them with that instead?
I followed everyone's advice and asked my direct supervisor about it. Apparently, it really was just nothing. For the past year, my work from home was actually "unofficial". My team leader/boss allowed me to do so, but since I was a contractor, I didn't have to go through the usual paperwork. A month ago, I've been made permanent, so in order to go through with my work from home days, I had to do the paperwork.
Basically, the progress reports are part of the requirement of the "official" work from home days in our company.
