Abstract: This study investigated work–family conflict (WFC) and enrichment (WFE) in relation to job
exhaustion and turnover intentions among long-term temporary (n = 384) and permanent (n = 430)
workers. We used three-wave data collected among Finnish university employees in 3 consecutive
years. The participants were either permanently or temporarily employed for the whole 3-year
period. The results showed that permanent employees reported both higher WFC and WFE during
the follow-ups than temporary employees. Temporary workers reported higher job exhaustion and
turnover intentions compared to permanent workers. Job contract functioned as a moderator: high
WFC showed a prospective effect on increased turnover intentions in permanent employees. In
contrast, temporary employees benefited more from high WFE, which showed a prospective effect
on reduced job exhaustion in temporary employees. The results suggest that measures taken to
improve work–family balance could have different implications for long-term temporary and
permanent workers.
