Content: To our knowledge, no study to date has examined the impact of a workaholic manager on their team members. This study seeks to shed light on this knowledge gap through the examination of what impact a workaholic manager has on the team climate and the subsequent impact this has on employee burnout, taking resilience and susceptibility to emotional contagion into account as moderators of these relationships.  We hypothesise that teams working under a workaholic manager will have low psychological safety climate scores and high scores on burnout. 
The hypotheses will be tested within a financial services company in Dublin, Ireland. Approximately 50 teams and their managers will be invited to complete an employee and manager survey respectively. ML-SEM techniques will be used to test the hypothesised relationships.
Although the data will be multi-level in nature, we will be unable to make inferences regarding causality as a cross-sectional design will be used.
The results of the study will shed light on the detrimental impact of manager workaholism on the team and therefore highlight the importance for organisations to ensure that workaholism is not encouraged for management.
There have been recent calls for empirical studies examining the relationship between workaholism and organisational climates and between workaholism and working conditions. This study will respond to such calls and further identify the mediating role of climate in the relationship between manager workaholism and employee burnout. Findings from this study could be very beneficial for organisations wanting to take proactive steps in preventing employee burnout.
