Remember: Employer first said: "We changing policy so you can work from home permanently".Employer says you must be in the office.
Employee says I can work from home.
Employer says YOU'RE FIRED!

YOU work for the employer, not the other way around.
Don't like it, QUIT!

Just from this point of view article like this one are very valuable lessons.

If there is no bidirectional communication, if the employer do not treat people like people, if the employer only forcing ideas on others this is not a well managed company. Sure, it can make money - same as Chinese sweat factories makes money - but again, it is not well managed and healthy organization. Then again, I'm sure most CEO's wet dreams are Chinese sweat shops - dirty cheap expandable human resources available 24/7, no rights, no unions, no insurance, no overtime pays, minimum wage and constantly tracked and fully micromanaged...
