"When simultaneous pressures from the work and family domains are mutually incompatible in some respect, such that meeting the demands of one role makes it difficult to meet the demands of the other role." (Greenhaus & Singh).

"Inter-role conflict in which the role demands stemming from one domain (work or family) are incompatible with role demands stemming from another domain (family or work) (Greenhaus & Buetell, 1985; Kahn, Wolfe, Quinn, Snoek, & Rosenthal, 1964)."" (Hammer & Thompson).
