Disable a users ability to login to a laptop when AD is not available

I am trying to figure out if I can set a timer on the cached credentials on a windows 7 laptop via gpo to disable the ability to logon to a laptop if they have not connected to AD for x amount of days.

So example:

Sales guy is on the road and gets let go.  While out of the office he is using his cached domain credentials for authentication.  I want to configure all the laptops so that if a user dosen't connect to AD in say 8 days that he will not be able to login to his laptop.  I also plan on enabling bitlocker so that if he pulls the drive he will not be able to get any data off it.

domain function level is at 2008 r2

has anyone done this?

It is not possible with GP. You can limit only logon count with cached cedentials. Here is a thread with almost same question, but clear solution was not found:
No you can't do this. The cached credential limit (which you can set), refers to the number of different users credentials that are cached, not how long they are cached for.

This isnt possible as when the user logs into the machine while in Domain his Profile is created and a Cache is made. Now once he is disconnected from the Network he can still log-into the machine with the same Domain credentials cause of the Cached entry.
