Resumo

Este estudo dois objetivos: analisar o efeito das características do trabalho propostas no modelo Job Demands-Control no conflito trabalho-família (WFC), e o efeito desta variável na saúde mental dos trabalhadores; considerar o papel mediador do WFC entre estas características do trabalho e a saúde mental. As hipóteses foram testadas, usando modelos de equações estruturais, em dois momentos, separados por um período de 6 meses, numa amostra de 958 empregados com funções diferentes numa organização portuguesa do setor de serviços. Os resultados mostram que as exigências do trabalho são significativas na determinação do WFC, o qual, por sua vez medeia a relação entre essas exigências do trabalho e a saúde mental dos funcionários seis meses depois. No entanto, a relação entre o controle e o WFC não foi significativa. O artigo destaca a relevância de intervir nas exigências do trabalho e no WFC para controlar a saúde mental dos trabalhadores.
