dc.description.abstract Family and work are the two most important domains of life for most adults in not only developed but also developing countries. Role expectations of the individual in these two institutions are often incompatible. The present study’s topic involves work–family conflict, a type of inter-role conflict in which the role pressures from the work and family domains are mutually incompatible in some way (Greenhaus and Beutell, 1985). The permeability of these two domains is defined as the extent to which demands of the family role are permitted to intrude into the work role and vice versa (Pleck, 1977), namely, work–family interference (WFI) conflict and family–work interference (FWI) conflict. In the above two types of conflict, WFI conflict is more prevalent as family boundaries are more permeable than work boundaries (Eagle et al., 1997). Our study is focused on WFI conflict, or work–family conflict. In previous studies, work– family conflict predicted negative employee outcomes as job burnout, depression, and anxiety (e.g., Allen et al., 2000). This study also focuses on the effects of work–family conflicts, especially on job burnout. en
