We utilize organizational justice theory and the multifoci framework to illustrate that coworkers are seen as unfairness sources in the telecommuting context. We show that nontelecommuters often perceive unfairness when their coworkers telecommute. However, working in pajamas is not a panacea as telecommuters also perceive unfairness owing to their remoteness. We support our arguments by highlighting representative quotes from employees and managers in four telecommuting organizations.
