Drawing on the work-home resources model, this study investigated the relationship between sexual harassment perceived by employees in the workplace and their work-family enrichment. We considered the potential mediating role of employees' organization-based self-esteem and moderating role of their polychronicity. Using two-wave time-lagged data collected from 362 part-time Master of Business Administration students with full-time jobs in China, we found that perceived sexual harassment at work was negatively related to employees' work-family enrichment via reduced organization-based self-esteem. Polychronicity alleviated the negative relationship between sexual harassment and organization-based self-esteem, and the mediating effect of sexual harassment on work-family enrichment through decreased organization-based self-esteem. We discuss the theoretical and practical implications of these findings.
