We were told that the reason my company discontinued telecommuting (except for a very few) was because their insurance wouldn't cover employees working from home, BUT they'd still be liable to be sued by a telecommuting employee or a visitor to the employee's home. This is California, and that info was from years ago. But I've never run across anything official on the subject.

4. Insurance. Insuring against the issues of employees sick or hurt on company property is not cheap. But if they are at home, you don't have to.
