Abstract:
In the modern, technology-driven work environment, it is now possible to dictate what employees do when they are outside the workplace as well as in it. This paper documents the growing phenomenon of 'polluted time' - periods or moments in which work pressures or commitments prevent someone from enjoying or otherwise making the most of their non-work time. Time can be polluted by needing to carry out work-related tasks outside of normal working hours, being on call to come into work if necessary, or simply thinking about work to the extent that affects the way free time is used or experienced.
