Work-family conflict due to incompatibility between work and family role demands has been increasingly studied because of its possible negative consequences, including personal, familiar and work-related outcomes. This research involved 641 employees of a Swedish company, with the aim of examining how the work-family conflict is influenced by certain variables (i.e. workload and number of working hours, quality of relationships, organizational support to work-family reconciliation) and observing differences within the antecedents of work-family conflict in relation to the sense of entitlement associated with organizational support. Responses indicate high level of sense of entitlement and point out that work-family conflict increases according to the workload and decreases in case of good relationship with management and in presence of organizational support; the latter, however, reduces conflict perception only for those with high sense of entitlement.
Keywords: Work-family conflict; sense of entitlement; organizational support.
