Introduction: The aim of this study was to analyze relations between work-family conflict (WFC) and family-work conflict (FWC) and job-related subjective well-being (job satisfaction, positive – PA and negative – NA affects at work).considering work engagement as variable that can mediate these relationships. Method: 114 employees (31.6% men) aged 25-55 (M=35.39; SD=7.42) completed a set of questionnaires: Work-Family and Family-Work Conflicts, Utrecht Work Engagement Scale (UWES-17), Job Affect Scale, and Job Satisfaction Scale. Results: All variables were related each to other. WFC and FWC predicted NA and work engagement and through it job satisfaction and PA, and then NA. Work engagement effect was stronger than conflicts effect – higher work engagement predicted higher job satisfaction and PA, and lower NA. When work engagement was controlled the job satisfaction- PA relation was ns. Conflict-work engagement interaction effects were not significant. Conclusions: Relationships are similar regarding both FWC and WFC. Work engagement do not moderate “conflict – job-related subjective well-being” relations but it mediates them. Conflicts increase NA and decrease work engagement and through it job satisfaction and PA. Work engagement enhances job-related subjective well-being protecting against adverse conflict impacts. Job satisfaction-PA relation is spurious – it results from work engagement impact on both variables.
