In recent years there has been a groundswell of research that overwhelmingly suggests extended working hours and the difficulty of balancing home and work are highly problematic for many employees. The paper adds to this literature by investigating work-life balance (WLB) issues and takes as its primary focus the time-based demands of jobs in the construction industry in Australia. This paper draws from two construction industry case studies that have experimented with restructuring working time arrangements.
