We conduct a field experiment in Poland to tease out the valuation of time flexibility. We asked participants to recommend wage changes in different situations. We find that employees are expected to see (small) wage cuts when requesting flexibility, whereas employers should provide increases when they require a flexible work arrangement. We do not find evidence of differences across genders. We interpret these findings under the light of an ideal worker model. The further away workers drift from this ideal, the lower the compensation should be.
