AutoCAD Release 11 (aka "the quiet release") was the first version to introduce Paperspace (with only ONE "layout tab") all the way back in 1990. Multiple Layout tabs didn't appear until AutoCAD 2000 I believe.
The OP's Managers are literally 21 years behind in their thinking. And even then, you do NOT draw your designs in Paperspace.
The "Dilbert Theory" says "Promote the useless people to Management where they can do the least amount of damage" - Well, so much for THAT theory.
Thank you everybody for your posts. Alot of good suggestions and memories being brought back. I just never thought to someone actually say draw in PS not MS so I was not prepared for answering thier questions.
