Recently, the stress of work-family conflict has been a critical workplace issue for Asian countries, especially within those cultures experiencing rapid economic development. Our research purpose is to translate and establish construct validity of a Korean-language version of the Multi-Dimensional Work-Family Conflict (WFC) scale used in the U.S. organizational context. The significance of this study is filling the cross-cultural gap in work-family interface studies by developing a psychometrically valid foreign (Korean) version of the WFC scale and facilitating cross-cultural studies on work-family issues in the workplace. We performed factor analysis to uncover the underlying structure of the Korean version of the WFC scale. The results indicate that the Korean version demonstrates psychometric properties similar to the original English version of the WFC scale.
