Abstract: This research investigates the relationship between inter-domain conflict in the form of work-family conflict and family-work conflict with various facets of employee job satisfaction. The study was conducted among police personnel (n = 119) in a large southeastern state. Results indicate that work-family conflict is significantly related to satisfaction with job in general, pay, supervision, promotion, work, and co-workers. Family-work conflict is not as consistently related to the facets of job satisfaction. In general, as expected, conflict between work-family is more closely related to employee job satisfaction than conflict between family-work. Managerial implications are included as well as directions for future theoretical research.
