Individuals' compulsive overworking behavior and desire for working excessively can affect their family or private life negatively and it can lead to work-family conflict which is substantial for employees and organizations because of its negative effects. Thus, the purpose of this study is to examine the relationship between workaholism (working excessively and working compulsively) and work-family conflict among married 356 assistant experts who work in different public institutions in Ankara. Participants completed a questionnaire on workaholism and work-family conflict. Correlations explored whether there were any relationships between workaholism and work-family conflict and regression analysis was used to ascertain the effect of workaholism on employee's work-family conflict. The results indicated that working excessively significantly and positively affected assistant experts’ work-family conflict. However, working compulsively did not significantly affect the participants’ work-family conflict.
