Abstract: Although work-related use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) during non-work time leads to techno-invasion, little is known whether employee techno-invasion causes job anxiety. Also, it remains unclear 'when' techno-invasion is particularly or less correlated to job anxiety. Based on the stress, appraisal and coping theory and the theory of conservation of resources, we examined whether techno-invasion increases employee job anxiety, and investigated whether computer self-efficacy and perceived organisational support can buffer this effect. The results show that techno-invasion positively predicts job anxiety, while both employee computer self-efficacy and perceived organisational support can significantly weaken this association. More importantly, we find a larger moderating effect of computer self-efficacy when employee perceived a low level of perceived organisational support.
