Professional employees are not the same as data entry operators or factory workers. When managing professionals I never expect them to be sitting at a desk 8 hours a day, I expect them to be wherever they need to be to get the job done. The indicators that they aren't doing that are the same for on-site or off-site workers, namely that there's no flow of information or status updates coming from them and people they're supposed to be interacting with complain that they can't be found when they're needed.

I attribute that to poor management. If an on-site worker was to disappear from their desk or workstation for hours on end, the manager would have a talk with them. Yet, many never check on their telecommuting workers.
