Abstract: The current study was performed to explore the linkages between work-family conflict, emotional dissonance and intention to quit. Primary data drawn from 346 employees belonging to 93 organisations were analysed to ascertain whether emotional dissonance mediates the relationship between work-family conflict and intention to quit. Multiple regression analysis was carried out to test the stated hypotheses. Based on the results of the data analysis of the study it was found that the work-family conflict had positive significant influence on intention to quit. Further, emotional dissonance is established as a key mediating mechanism between the work-family conflict and intention to quit.
