You should be able to do this through their Active Directory profile. I dont have it up in front of me but there should be a "Remote xxxx" tab or something like that. You can restrict logon times.

Within the user's AD account tab, you can define the logon hours which would apply to any logon the user has i.e. LAN systems or TS.
I.e. if you setup that the user can only logon M-F 8am-5pm.  This will be the liimt of all AD resources for this user.
