Sammanfattning

Lottery winners suffering from work-life or work-family imbalance are expected to devote less time to work. The article considers the effects of gender, parenthood, form of living arrangement, and work-family balance on the working patterns of 420 Swedish lottery winners. The impact of reduced working hours and increased leave periods on their work-life balance is discussed. The analysis shows that it is the younger winners living alone who take periods of unpaid leave and the female winners with no children at home who shorten their workweeks. Ability to reconcile the work situation with family life appears insignificant in this respect. Nonetheless, fewer working hours and more leave periods facilitates reconciliation between work and family life, allowing also more time for other activities in life.
