A study titled Trouble at the Border?: Gender, Work, and the Work-Home Interface, by University of Toronto sociology Professor Scott Schieman with Paul Glavin, found that workers with the most job autonomy and work schedule control were more likely to bring extra work home with them. "Generally, people who had more schedule control and job autonomy had more work-family role blurring, and that's a big predictor of stress for most people. It's also a key indicator of work-family conflict," Schieman said.
