The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between work-family conflict, family-work conflict and
job satisfaction using structural equation modeling. The data is obtained from 226 health service staff (doctors
and nurses) in Turkey. Considering the findings, it is concluded that health employees experience work-family
conflict more than they experience family-work conflict. Results obtained from the structural equation modeling
indicate that there is a reciprocal relationship between work-family conflict and family-work conflict and that
work-family conflict has an influence on job satisfaction whereas family-work conflict does not affect job
