By Lenka Ďuranová, Sandra Ohly

The target of this paintings is to supply perception into the method of worker restoration and overall healthiness in regard to work-related ICT use in the course of after-hours. as a result, we talk about (1) theories that support us to appreciate the determinants and results of this habit, (2) our middle thoughts restoration and future health, and (3) prior empirical findings on ICT use after hours for paintings reasons. at the foundation of literature overview, we suggest a brand new conceptual total framework of ICT use after hours for paintings reasons with the focal point on worker restoration and future health tactics. Thereby, we posit ICT use after hours for paintings reasons as capability stressor, source, or call for (see motion conception through Hacker, 1998, 2003; Frese and Zapf 1994), reckoning on many own and environmental components, yet totally on cognitive value determinations (see transactional version of pressure through Lazarus and Folkman 1984). This three-way department permits us to suggest a variety of linear and non-linear institutions to targeted results.
