The need to reconcile working with non-working life (family and domestic responsibilities) has been gaining importance over the decades, as a result of increasing female employment rates in Malaysia and drastic changes in family patterns, changes that have given rise to a growing number of nuclear or single-parent families. Studies in the area of work-life balance have so far mainly concentrated on the conflict between people’s work and other life roles. It is generally accepted that there is a clear link between work-life conflict and work-life balance, as attaining work-life balance is dependent on managing or reducing the conflict between various roles. This research is aimed at studying work-life balance and conflict in retailing company which focused to Tesco Stores (M) Sdn. Bhd., Melaka Branch. In this study, the researcher would like to study the level of work-life balance and conflict, organizational support, job satisfaction and work stress faced by employees.
