Help!
Welcome to the forum. I agree with the advice the others have given. Don't let him have the run of the house when you are not home or at night when you are sleeping. After he adjusts to being alone while you are working, he should return to being reliable with his potty training.
My gf and I were in exactly the same position when we got Monkey and it's easy. All you have to do is keep and eye on him. And I mean all the time ! When you're home of course. As soon as he squats, a short 'no' and pick him up and either take him straight outside or onto the puppy pads. Praise him lots for doing a good job and clean up the mess straight away. Of course when you're not there you need to confine him in a place where there is a pad or to a crate. They don't like fouling there sleeping area remember so he should learn quickly to keep it in or foul in the correct place. Hope this helps. C
