defined work family conflict as a form of inter-role conflict where the
pressure from both the work and family are incompatible manner. When the demand
of work and family are mismatched in some degree then the work family conflict
occurs. It also occurs when one role affects one’s ability to complete another
role’s demand which is related with another field.  Jacque L. King,

incompatible to each other. When the participation of one domain affects the
participation of another domain difficult then the conflict arises. Work family
conflict does have negative effects on the employees, their families and work
organizations.

Greenhaus and Beutell (1985)

positive and negative ways. The influences are time, tasks, attitudes, stress,
emotions and behaviors which are let out on the work and family. WFC can result
in two types of direction one is family can interfere with work and work can
interfere with family. There are three forms of work family conflict which are
time based conflict, strain based conflict and behavior based conflict.  Time based conflict occurred when one role is
unable to fulfill the demand of another role due to pressure of time. Strain
based conflict occurs when the strain affects the performance of one role to
the other roles performance. When behavioral pattern are incompatible between
two roles then behavioral based conflict occurs. Aminah
