Este estudio analiza la influencia del uso de las tecnologías de la comunicación para el trabajo en casa durante el tiempo fuera del trabajo en el conflicto trabajo-familia. Nuestro análisis se basa en la teoría de los límites entre trabajo y familia. Por otra parte, este estudio destaca los roles de desapego psicológico y apoyo familiar. Sobre la base de 423 participantes, utilizamos el análisis de regresión para probar nuestras hipótesis. Los resultados muestran que el uso de la tecnología de comunicación para trabajar en casa durante el tiempo fuera del trabajo se relaciona positivamente con el conflicto entre el trabajo y la familia, incluyendo los conflictos basados en el tiempo y la tensión. El apoyo de la familia modera el efecto del uso de las tecnologías de la comunicación para el trabajo en casa durante el tiempo fuera del trabajo en el conflicto laboral-familiar del empleado. Además, el desapego psicológico media el efecto moderador del apoyo familiar sobre la relación entre el uso de las tecnologías de la comunicación para el trabajo en casa durante el tiempo fuera del trabajo y el conflicto entre el trabajo y la familia.
