In the present competitive scenario, any industry is focusing work life balance of their employees, to create a healthy win-win environment for both the employees and organisation. The literatures studies display that male employees or workers are affected by work life imbalance but females are more prone to work family imbalance issues. The work life balance issues are not only dependent on women's capability and energy but also dependent on various factors related to work environment (like working conditions, work flexibility, work demands, working hours, travelling time, advancement of technology, etc.) and family related factors (like family demands, support from family members, demographic profile, time, energy and other personal factors). When these family and work related factors tend to interfere with each other by making individual to concentrate on one role leaving the other an imbalance occurs between family and work, that results in work family conflict, family work conflict, stress, tension, poor performance, absenteeism and turnover from workplace. This article discusses about the work life balance of women workers working with tannery industry in Tamil Nadu, India. The researcher found that the less experienced labours have less work life balance issues when compared to high experienced labours. © 2021 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.. All rights reserved.
