Nurnazirah Jamadin, Samsiah Mohamad, Zurwina Syarkawi, and Fauziah Noordin
Abstract—The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of work family conflict among the employs of a semi-government organization in East Malaysia. This study has adopted the Workplace scale that was developed by Tate, Whatley, and Clugston (1997) scale in order to measure the effect of work family conflict and the stress level among the employees. The results indicate that the employees appear to have lower level of work – family conflict and lower level of job stress. It is recommended that future research should focus on employees in other organizations both in public and private organizations. The findings of such studies would aid management of these organizations to further understand the effect of work-family conflict and stress among their employees.

Index Terms—Work–job stress, work-family conflict.
