      <Abstract>Purpose - Work life balance is a highly researched topic which mainly emphasizes on one thing - we work to live or live to work. Is the quality of life being maintained? In this era, the old-style breadwinner-homemaker family is switched by the dual-earner family as the main family model, and it is expected to remain the leading family form for the coming future. This change in the family model has carved the interest in understanding the work-and-family interface. Elements which are quite researched are job satisfaction, time for self/leisure activities, work-family conflict (WFC) and family work conflict (FWC).&#13;
Objective of this work-and-family balance research is to try to find the relationship between job satisfaction of employees and number of working days. Second objective is to compare the work-family conflict and family work conflict of both the genders.&#13;
Findings of the research are that the working days do not affect the job satisfaction of the employees. Second finding of the research is that gender does affect the way family-work conflict and work-family conflict is perceived.</Abstract>
