The aim of this study was to investigate how job satisfaction and job stress were related to 4 domains of family functioning: individual, parent-child, marital, and child domains. The effects of work on family functioning were tested using a sample of 657 Dutch men who were working full-time. The results showed that job stress and job dissatisfaction were related to individual strain, which mediated their effect on the parent-child, marital, and child domains. Consequently, in promoting family functioning, more emphasis should be placed on employment experiences (e.g., through interventions designed to increase occupational well-being).
