Psychological contract theory (Rousseau 1995) suggests that women and those with family responsibilities may negotiate new psychological contracts that include family-responsive benefits such as flexible work hours. Relationships of gender, family responsibility and flexible work hours to organizational commitment and job satisfaction were examined among 160 matched male and female managers. Results showed that women who perceived their organizations offered flexible work hours reported higher levels of organizational commitment and job satisfaction than women who did not. Flex time was related to higher organizational commitment and job satisfaction for those having family responsibilities.
