Abstract: In this study, we demonstrate and enhance the applicability of the Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) to the explanation of the intended continuance level of telecommuting. The results of a survey of 101 current telecommuters provide strong support for the proposed theoretical developments. Overall, the model explains 49.2% of the variance in telecommuters| intended level of telecommuting continuance. Despite a negative moderating effect of habit, attitude maintains a significant effect on intention. Subjective norms also continue to exert a moderate effect on intention.
Keywords: telecommuting; continuance intention; theory of planned behaviour; TPB; quasi-voluntary behaviour; attitude.
