One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

Qasr shorten prayers at work
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 4 Surah Nisaa verse 101:
101 When ye travel through the earth there is no blame on you if ye shorten your prayers.
Beloved brother, because you are not in the state of travel or journey either at your location at work nor when at home, and although the two places happen to be 150km apart, you reside in both places equally.thus in the opinion of the scholars of Fiqh or Islamic Jurisprudence you are to offer full prayers at both the locations, at work and also at home.
But if you are in the actual state of travel between the two places and a prayer time approaches when you are in journey between the two places, you would be entitled to offer that particular prayer in the shortened format. And Allah Alone Knows Best.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
