Abstract

Schedule control can have both positive – e.g., increased income – but also negative outcomes – e.g., increased overtime. Here our core interest is whether there are gender discrepancies in these outcomes. Given the different ways in which schedule control can be used, and perceived to be used by men and women, their outcomes are also expected to be different. This is examined using the German Socio-Economic Panel Study (2003-2011), and panel regression models. The results show that schedule control is associated with increases in overtime and income – but only for men. Women in full-time positions also increase their overtime hours when using schedule control yet they do not receive similar financial rewards. The results of this study provide evidence to show that increases in schedule control has the potential to traditionalise gender roles by increasing mainly men’s working hours, while also adding to the gender pay gap.
