Home-based telework is a growing phenomenon with great potential to affect employees' psychological well-being. Although prior studies show both positive and negative effects on work–family interaction, conclusions are limited by the way telework, well-being, and work–family interaction have been modeled. The authors present a conceptual framework that describes telework as a multidimensional phenomenon and separates the effects of the home environment from those of distance from the organization. Propositions concerning work–family interaction are developed from P. Warr's (1987) model of the environmental antecedents of well-being, prior telework studies, and the work–family literature. Spillover between work and nonwork domains of well-being is discussed, and suggestions for future research on this complex issue are presented.
