Right to disconnect: A cure-all for work-to-life conflict?
Other conference paper



摘要This study adopts Boundary Theory to examine the relationship between information and communication technology (ICT) and work-to-life conflict (WLC). Results reveal that both positive and negative perceptions of ICT use for work-related tasks are significant predictors of WLC. Remarkably, positive and negative perceptions of such ICT use are significantly positively correlated. This study questions the presumption of a dichotomous ICT effect in the extant literature and the perspective of technological determinism much of that literature adopts.
Situational strength factors, including perceived organizational support and supervisor support, are significant predictors of WLC. Furthermore, these situational strength factors moderate the relationship between positive perception of ICT use and WLC. When supervisors are were very supportive and when organizational norms assumed that work should always take priority, positive ICT perception had a greater effect on WLC reduction. The study highlights the role of situational strength factors played in technology-human interaction within organizations.
