Can my supervisor put restrictions and rules on me that no one else has to follow without a reason?

We all perform the same duties but he has singled me out and put restrictions on when I can monitor programs in the field. Then, about 9 days ago, he accused me of completing a client interview for a client and my reports were inadequate. I wrote memo requesting clarification on what he wanted in the reports I also submitted a statement from the client explaining he completed the client interview, he didn’t address it. Instead gave me a memo saying I will only be allowed in the field on an as needed basis and my reports are due within 2 days of completing my monitoring. No one else has to do this.

Given what you have written about it seems as though you are being unfairly discriminated against without any legal basis by your supervisor. I suggest that you have a meeting with your company's human resources department to resolve the matter and if not resolved, consult with a labor law attorney and/or a representative with your local department of labor.
