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