For a long time men worked to earn money while women took care of the household responsibilities. However, the changes in socio-economic pattern led both men and women to join the work force, which resulted in work-life Imbalance. Researchers started to study the concept of work-life balance to ensure employees wellbeing at work. In this regard, the current study aims to examine the impact of work-family conflict on organizational commitment among the clerical staff members in Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. This research has identified factors that influenced the work-life balance of employees. Broadly, the researcher has tried to explain the impact of the work-family conflict and family to work conflict towards organizational commitment. The population of this study was clerical staff grade N17 at University Teknologi Malaysia (UTM). A sample of 150 clerical staff was chosen through multi stage sampling. A self-administered questionnaire was designed to collect data. The results showed that both work family conflict and family to work conflict were negatively related with organizational commitment. It was further found that they were also affecting work-life balance. It is therefore suggested that at individual level, clerical staff in UTM should get awareness about causes and consequences of work-family conflict, while the management of UTM should provide a conducive workplace to its employees to avoid the negative effect of work-family conflict. In this way individual commitment, work life balance of employees and overall productivity of university could be enhanced.
