I have to work from home and besides working in my pjs and cooking at home it actually sucks.

I am ďon callĒ since many aspects of my job arenít possible remotely.

The trouble I foresee is that I am much less efficient even on items I can do remotely, if I have questions I canít simply interact with the equipment to find solutions, itís more difficult to find anyone that knows anything and overall slower to do everything.
I can see some companies taking a knee jerk reaction like you suggest but everything will go down hill if they arenít very careful in who/how/when they do it.

Hopefully this is understood
