Ivette Lafita Chiappo, Toni DiDona


This paper examines work-family conflicts (WFC) and family-work conflicts (FWC) through a multi-dimensional self-report questionnaire. The purpose of this study is to determine if Hispanic and Non-Hispanic groups vary significantly in their responses to WFC. Understanding the demands and needs of the workforce in terms of ethnic groups may assist in creating a balanced workplace environment and improve organizational strategies. Data was collected with an internet-based questionnaire utilizing a convenient sampling method. Responses were evaluated according to respondent’s ethnicity; more specifically a comparison was made between Hispanics and Non-Hispanics. It was hypothesized that WFC would vary significantly by ethnic groups. Using T-test, results indicate significance between Hispanics and Non-Hispanics with regards to WFC at p < .05.
