Based on individual and focus group interviews with managers and employees in three Dutch organizations, this studies identifies how managers’ and employees’ daily discourses contribute to the determine how work-life policies are implemented and used. Analyses revealed differences in employees and managers’ resistance to policy, the binds and dilemmas experienced, and coordinated agreements and actions to complete workloads. In following Kirby ad Krone (2002), we identify themes persistent across organizations and employee status.
