“‘Managing work-family relationships’ dealt, respectively, with work and marital satisfaction, husbands’ and wives’ work time, dual career couples, and work-family supportive practices” (Young, 1999, p. 37).

“For the purpose of the present study, the perceived fairness of work/family benefits is defined as a belief about the exchange relationship between employees and employers that deals with the offering and usage of work/family benefits” (Parker & Allen, 2001, p. 454).

Work/family benefits have been defined as “any benefit, working condition, or personnel policy that has been shown to empirically decrease job-family conflicts among employed parents” (Glass & Fujimoto, 1995, p. 382).
