Abstract

The effects of psychosocial stressors may have an impact on the employees’ personal life, impairing their health. The objective of this study is to analyze the mediating role of work-family conflict in the relationship between workplace bullying and health problems. The sample was composed of 441 employees from different organizations in the telecommunications sector located in Madrid. Results show that workplace bullying has negative direct effects on health, and indirect through work-family conflict, which implies a partial mediation. This finding has theoretical implications. Specifically, the negative effects of workplace bullying may be transmitted through a conflict that takes place in the non-work domain.
