What a Difference a Day Makes, or Does It? Work/Family Balance and the Four-Day Work Week
Social Science Research NetworkLink to more items from this source
Apr. 26, 2010
Excerpt: This Article considers the growing reliance that four-day work week advocates have placed on work/family claims. It begins by analyzing whether a compressed work schedule may alleviate work/family conflicts, and more importantly, for whom such benefits are most likely to accrue. While studies consistently find that many workers experience lower levels of work/family conflict when working a compressed schedule, the research also suggests that workers with the most acute work/family conflicts may be the least likely either to obtain or to benefit from a four-day work week design.
