First, I'd question why a user who would do this is permitted the continued privilege of having local administrator rights.  That sounds like abuse of privilege to me...

Anyway, as a domain member computer, domain admins are setup by the domain join process as local admin.  If, however, the domain admins are removed from the local admins group on the workstation, you can no longer access this computer as a privileged user.

You can fix this, however but I think the only way is to go to the workstation and fix it as a local admin OR fixup a LOGON script that will re-add your domain admin group to the local admins group every time the machine is logged on.  (Actually, this is a good practice anyway and you should look into implementing it on all workstations.)
