Most people admit that they will cheat when they can. Working at home makes it pretty tempting. I would love to work at home, I can do my job in far fewer hours than they pay me for, I'd bet a lot of people can.

There is nothing wrong with working from home. You have people who come to the office and don't do the work they are being paid for as well. I happen to know from personal experience that honest people who work from home tend to get more work done than if they were at the office. When you're at home, you don't have the interruptions and distractions that you experience at the office and you are more productive. If people are going to cheat, it doesn't matter where they are working from.

Personally, I find it easier to focus on work when I'm at the office, and generally work from home only for relatively brief "emergency" tasks. But I've worked with people who were productive and successful while telecommuting. A blanket ban on telecommuting seems like a rather blunt instrument to me, and makes me wonder what the real underlying problems are.
