This study researches the relationship between flexible working and/or telecommuting and the perceived work-home conflict among Swedish and Dutch employees. The study tests the role scarcity hypothesis and the spillover theory by doing a regression analyse. By using the surveys of the the quantitative data from The European Workforce Survey there is pointed out that telecommuting increases perceived work-home conflict. Support for the role scarcity hypothesis and negative spillover is found when employees make use of telecommuting. Flexible work does not seem to define the perceived work-home conflict. Employers should thus be aware of the policy they offer their employees when they want to minimize work-home conflict. Besides that, individual- and contextual factors are researched in reference to perceived work-home conflict. The different individual– and contextual factors seem to influence the perceived work-home conflict. National and/or organizational policy may offer a solution to combat the perceived work-home conflict.
