This study examines the links between employee perceptions of job insecurity, the work-nonwork interface, and stress-related outcomes. Drawing on an adaptation perspective, we expect employees feeling greater job insecurity to engage in adaptive work behaviors including less use of work-nonwork support programs and greater willingness to let work permeate into one's personal life, which in turn will associate with greater work-nonwork conflict and emotional exhaustion. Data were collected from employees within a large energy company at 2 points in time. Results support the model, offering important insights into employee behavioral responses to job insecurity and key mechanisms through which insecurity may foster diminished employee well-being.
