Work–family conflict is a type of inter-role conflict that occurs as a result of incompatible role pressures from the work and family domains. Work role characteristics that are associated with work demands refer to pressure arising from excessive workload and time pressures.

There are three factors that researchers focus which are role overload, management support and also gender role orientation.
