This is the first study that attempts to understand the moderation effects of employee work recovery experiences on overwork and the dimensions of social harm of work. The data for the study was collected using the social harm of work and work recovery experience questionnaires from a total of 187 full-time employees from Australia with more than five years of work experience. Our study revealed that divisionary strategies of work recovery experiences have a very limited role in reducing the social harm of work caused by the overwork context. Future research should combine problem-focused coping strategies along with the divisionary strategies of work recovery experiences to reduce the social harm of overwork to plan and introduce sustainable human resource management (HRM) practices.
