Just log on as a local user. Although the log on screen may default to a domain logon you should be able to change it. Best to make it Administrator, then you can change it from being a member of a domain to a Workgroup.

You may need to contact the IT people at your workplace to find out what the local Administrator password is. They will know.

Log on as a local user. A domain admin may be able to log on. A common user may have a temp cached credentials.

To log on through the domain, you'd have to have a vpn to work that may also involve a pki server but dunno what you have.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.
