The role of telecommuting for work-family conflict among German employees

Telecommuting became an increasingly popular work mode in firms. It can help employees to schedule and reconcile their professional and private lives more easily. At the same time, telecommuting might also lead to a blurring of boundaries between work and family life which may increase work-family conflict. Using individual-level data from 15,035 German employees, this paper analyses the opportunity of employees for telecommuting and its role in work-family conflicts. The analysis is based on a probit model. The results reveal that telecommuting decreases the probability for employees to reconcile professional and personal interests.
