Gender differences in workplace choices under crisis conditions

Working from home is an option that differs from other forms of employment. This type of employment is driven not only by globalization and outsourcing, but also by unequal gender relationships within the home. Two multi-logistic regressions were used to determine how the distribution of in-home working arrangements differs by sex and by male/female age range, level of education, marital status and degree of urbanization of the place of residence. The results suggest that these characteristics have a differential influence on men’s and women’s employment decisions. The results also indicate that the crisis had a strong impact on the employment levels of home-based workers, especially male home workers, at the same time that it boosted employment in the services sector.
