This study examined the impact of work-life conflict on organizational commitment among faculty members of different universities in Pakistan. Both variables were measured through questionnaires. Work life conflict was measured through work life conflict scale and organizational commitment was measured through organizational commitment scale. These questionnaires were distributed among 300 faculty members of different universities in Pakistan. Out of 300 questionnaires distributed 260 questionnaires were received back with response rate of 86.67%. The results of the study revealed that there is negative and significant impact of work-life conflict on organizational commitment. It is also exposed that facets of work-life conflict also have negative and significant influence on organizational commitment. This study provides an important tool for managers to enhance the organizational commitment by reducing the work-life conflict and introducing work-life balance in their organizations and also provides implications for researchers interested in exploring the organizational commitment with respect to work-life conflict in broader context.
