Job Level, Demands, and Resources as Antecedents of Work-Family Conflict
DiRenzo, Marco S.; Greenhaus, Jeffrey H.; Weer, Chisty H.
Journal of Vocational Behavior, v78 n2 p305-314 Apr 2011
Although substantial research has examined the conflict that employees experience between their work and family roles, the literature has not investigated the prevalence and antecedents of work-family conflict for individuals who work at different levels of an organization. This study examines differences in work-family conflict (work interference with family and family interference with work) for lower-level and higher-level employees, the factors that might explain these differences, and the differential effect of resources on conflict across job levels. Results indicate that higher-level workers experience greater conflict in both directions than lower-level workers, and that work- and home-based resources are differentially related to the conflict experienced by employees who hold lower-level and higher-level jobs. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
