Dr. Ahmad Zainal Abidin bin Abd Razak, Dr. Che Mohd Zulkifli bin Che Omar, Dr. Jamal Nordin bin Yunus

This study examined the relationship between spouse support, parental demand and family involvement (family issues) with the two dimensions of work-family conflict [work interference with family (WIF) and family interference with work (FIW)]. The sample comprised of 391 local medical officers working full-time in nineteen public hospitals in Peninsular Malaysia. Statistical results using multiple regression analysis indicated that parental demand and family involvement were positively related to work interference with family (WIF). On the other hand, it was found that spouse support and parental demand have significant impact on family interference with work (FIW). Implications of the results, limitations, and future research directions are also presented.
