Quick question to H1B or greencard holders. Currently I’m getting sponsored by my company. However my supervisor keep asking me to share all my personal documents with him. He is blocking the connection between me and HR, and he told me not to contact HR directly. If HR request any doc, he gets the request and deliver to me. When I need to submit my doc to HR, he brings my doc to HR. Is this normal procedure?? He is so sketchy. He even checks employee’s home address on google road maps..
