How Do Changes in Family Role Status Impact Employees? An Empirical Investigation. By: Perrigino, M., Kossek, E., Thompson, R., & Bodner, T. 2021. Journal of Humanities and Applied Social Sciences. Vol. 4 Issue 5, p393-409.
Despite the proliferation of work–family research, a thorough understanding of family role status changes (e.g. the gaining of elder or child caregiving responsibilities) remain under-theorized and under-examined. The purpose of this paper is to conceptualize various forms of family role status changes and examine the ways in which these changes influence various employee outcomes.
Data were collected as part of the work–family health study. Using a longitudinal, three-wave study with two-time lags of 6 months (n = 151 family role status changes; n = 392 individuals with family role stability), this study uses one-way analysis of variance to compare mean differences across groups and multilevel modeling to examine the predictive effects of family role status changes.
