Assuming the organization is not SoHo sized, or smaller, unless the person negotiating with Microsoft for licenses is a complete idiot, the license will allow for each employee to install MSO on their home computer, for the duration of their employment, or the corporate license expires, whichever comes first.

may I ask you one real world case where this actually happened?

I'm aware of three companies that did that...

It's been many years since I last purchased WordPerfect, but at the time, it's standard license allowed one to install a copy on both a business computer and a home computer (or laptop) as long as the program was only used on one of the computers at a time. I don't know if it still has that license language, but at the time, I found it very freeing. I tend to be a little obsessive about respecting software companies' licenses, which is why I love FOSS.
