Chapter 4: Work–life conflict and its effects

Jesse S. Michel, Malissa A. Clark and Angela A. Beiler


Conflict between work and other life domains has been a topic of great interest to researchers, practitioners and society in general. Accordingly, research investigating the relationship between work and life has steadily increased over the past few decades (Eby et al., 2005).
