Auswirkungen flexibler Arbeitszeiten auf die Gesundheit von Beschäftigten

Abstract

"Advocates of flexible working-time models cite among other things their positive effects on health; opponents on the other hand expect negative effects. Applying fixed-effects regressions to German panel data, we examine the impact of employee-managed and firm-controlled flexible working time on the health of employees. We use the employees' self-rated health and their number of days in sick leave. The results suggest that flexible working hours have neutral or only slightly negative effects on health. Men's health is more likely to suffer when their working-time flexibility is self-determined, while women's health suffers more when the flexibility is controlled by the firm. How-ever, the effects are of a small magnitude." (Author's abstract, IAB-Doku) ((en))
