Based from your statement, I would bet the your desktop computer is has an image of your office Windows Operating system with all the apps that came with it.
Usually, they do installed VNC, and some applications like SMS or SCCM. For the most part, I am thinking that you connect to the office via some type of VPN. Corporate offices do not allow work from home not unless its through some time of VPN. It could be SSL or a client installed.
Anyway, for your office to be able to access the home computer, they should be in the same environment as that desktop you are working on. I doubt that would be the setup of the home PC. Its not set up to be accessible remotely at default.
I highly doubt it that your work IT can gain access to your Laptop not unless they slipped a remote access application. They would have to have physical access to that PC to be able to do that.
