Abstract

This study was conducted to measure the effect of work stress and coworker's social support on work interference with family conflict using 118 usable questionnaires gathered from academic staff in a public university in East Malaysia, Malaysia. The outcomes of hierarchical regression analysis showed three important findings: First, interaction between role ambiguity and coworker's social support significantly correlated with work interference with family conflict. Second, interaction between role conflict and coworker's social support significantly correlated with work interference with family conflict. Third, interaction between role overload and coworker's social support insignificantly correlated with work interference with family conflict. Statistically, this result demonstrates that coworker's social support is a moderating variable in the relationship between two work stress features (i.e., role ambiguity and role conflict) and work interference with family conflict. Conversely, coworker's social support is not a moderating variable in the relationship between role overload and work interference with family conflict. Further, this study confirms that coworker's social support does act as a partial moderating variable in the work stress model of the studied organization.
