Do Female and Male Employees in Iran Experience Similar Work-Family Interference, Job, and Life Satisfaction?
Karimi, Leila
Journal of Family Issues, v30 n1 p124-142 2009
This study aims at examining gender differences in the experience of work-family interference and perceived job-life satisfaction in a group of Iranian employees. The participants in the study consist of 387 Iranian male and female employees from a variety of organizations. The results of t tests and multiple regression analysis using EQS 6.1 support the hypothesis that Iranian male and female employees experience similar interference in their work-family domains although they spend different numbers of hours in the workplace. The findings also show that whereas work-to-family interference has significant and negative effects on job-life satisfaction among male employees, for female employees, working hours and family-to-work interference had even more significant and negative effects on their job-life satisfaction. Implications are discussed and recommendations made regarding future research and interventions in this area. (Contains 4 tables.)
