Despite the growing research on demographic diversity in general, there exists little understanding of how different social groups experience work-family conflict in their daily lives. From the perspectives of diversity and intersectionality, this thesis compares the within-individual relationships between daily work-family conflict (both work interference with family and family interference with work), guilt in the family and job domains, and family and job satisfaction experienced by different genders (men vs. women) and ethnicities (South Asian vs. white British people) for each gender group. For hypothesis testing, five-day diary surveys were collected from 211 solicitors in the U.K. The results of Bayesian multilevel structural equation modelling showed that as daily work-family conflict increased, the participants, regardless of their gender or ethnicity, experienced higher levels of daily guilt in the job and family domains, and subsequently lower levels of daily job and family satisfaction. However, in terms of family interference with work, women in general, and South Asian men and women in particular, exhibited more salient patterns of these relationships than their male and white British counterparts. By demonstrating that an individual's social identities and associated macro-contexts (e.g., gender norms, attitudes towards work and family roles, and social status) can have a significant impact on daily work-family conflict, this thesis contributes to the literature by developing identity-sensitive and intersectional theories of the work-family interface.
