It worries me the way he does the work.----------Is this perfect English ?
The way=as, am I right?
Re: It worries me the way he does the work.
It's fine. Normally, it would read, "The way he does his work worries me." Your line is turned around but not wrong. I'd add a comma though, because of the "It," which becomes the subject noun and (I think) makes the second part a dependent clause. I'm not a grammarian, though, so let's see if anyone else here would add the comma.
