Just have a conversation with your supervisor and HR. Don't need to overthink it


I'm anon; I'm in a satellite office and all the partners I work with are in the main offices. No official supervisor, though there is a partner and a senior associate who collectively probably fill up half my docket. Do I call each of the partners and discuss before sending my email to HR, or can I send them an email after I send my letter to HR? Just the ones who I work with a lot? Not really trying to over think it so much as I legit don't know the protocol and googling gave mixed results.

Tell your main partner first out of professional courtesy, then let HR know
