The continuously increasing rate of women's labour force participation has rendered the traditional male providerâ€“female homemaker construction of gender roles obsolete or anachronistic. Due to the change in the sex role ideology, balancing or juggling work and family roles has become a particularly important issue for working men and women. As a result, family-friendly benefits and practices are emerging in organisations, and studies that examine the effects of the family supportiveness on such criteria as work-family conflict and work withdrawal behaviours, are increasing. Using a sample of Japanese married men, the present study investigated if organisational family supportiveness affected turnover intention directly and/or indirectly through work-family conflict. The results indicated that both the direct and indirect effects were not significant; only the path from work-family conflict to turnover intention reached the significance level. The meaning of the findings and directions for future research are discussed.
