Abstract: Purpose – This paper aims to examine the effects of gender and satisfaction with organizational support on work – family conflict. Design/methodology/approach – The authors used a questionnaire to collect data from 236 married accountants employed in service organizations in the UAE. Data were analyzed using a two-step hierarchical regression. Findings – The results indicate that organizational support is an important tool to reduce work – family conflict among married accountants employed in the UAE. In addition, female accountants face higher levels of conflict than males. Research limitations/implications – The authors used a convenient sample which limits the degree of generalizing the results beyond the studied organizations. In addition, the regression models were specified in a linear function. Other functions may produce different results. Practical implications – The results provide motivation for firms to adopt policies to support employees to reduce work – family conflict. Originality/value – This is the first study to examine the role of gender and organizational support in work – family conflict among accountants employed in the UAE while controlling for the time sources of the conflict. © 2015, Emerald Group Publishing Limited.
