Less time, more productivity?

There have been suggestions recently that allowing staff at work access to 'distracting' web stuff such as Facebook actually increases productivity. The 'theory' is that such e-breaks help employees de-stress and recharge and also shows them that they are trusted - they respond (remember this is still theory) by exercising self-control over the amount of time they 'waste' on such sites.

I prefer evidence-based findings ... this is all anecdotal and hypothetical. Anyone know of any research that can back this up or refute it?
