Work-family conflict is a serious issue for both employees and organizations. It leads to multiple consequences at both levels. Work-family conflict causes employees to develop negative attitudes toward work due to an unbalanced life between their job and family. Job satisfaction is one of these attitudes and work-family conflict leads to unsatisfied individuals. On the organizational side, such conflict may result in lower organizational performance and success because of unsatisfied employees. In this context, manager support can serve as a beneficial resource for alleviating the influence of work-family conflict on employees. Therefore, the present study aimed to examine the impact of work-family conflict on employee satisfaction considering the mediating role of manager support. The study data was collected using questionnaires. The results of the study demonstrated that work-family conflict has an effect on job satisfaction and such effect was reduced by manager support.
