Abstract: Work- Family Interface is a bidirectional term which explains mainly two domains: Work- Family Conflict and Work-Family Enrichment. Work-family Enrichment speaks about the bidirectional positive relationship of work and family. Work-family Conflict explains the negative bidirectional relationship of work and family. Many researchers are increasingly paying interest in Work-family interface as it can affect job satisfaction as well as life satisfaction. This paper investigates about the Family-work conflict among employees of The Travancore Cements Ltd., Kottayam, Kerala. The study was conducted among 81 employees of the organization. The finding of the study was that the employees are affected by Family-work conflict irrespective of their gender, education qualification, number of working hours per week, work experience, monthly income, marital status, number of school going children and partner’s profession. In case of the number of children of employees, a significant difference is seen with regard to the variable ‘family-related strain’.
