Work is the most important factor in our society and all over the world, but family is also the most important and crucial factor and the part for human beings. No one can be leave or left from both of them these both should be parallel for successful life. If a person left even a single one or disturbed from one of them then the other one is also been disturb or it cannot be go efficient in work place. The inappropriateness between these two factors or domains creates stress and psychological strains. Thus this study examined the effect of work family conflict on the turnover and on the performance of an employee. Our area to collect the data and conduct the research from banking sector of Pakistan. We collected the data through a well-defined and reliable questionnaire. This study showed that employees assigned in various banks had experiences of conflicts, strain, conflicts in their workplaces, which impacted negatively on their work, family, and health. Moreover, the employees have perceived on a general basis that their work and life are not balanced in with their current jobs. Furthermore, the findings suggest that conflicts and stress positively correlated among employees. Similarly, organizational performance is also positively correlated with the employee performance. In other words, the employees were neither saved nor spared from work-life conflicts. It is recommended that management tackle and implement work-life enrichment initiatives, both affective and instrumental, to improve the market position of employer of choice and thereby it will enjoy significant cost savings related to human resources because it will be able to attract and retain a crop of quality front-line employees.
