This study aimed to further research regarding the influences of family obligations, telecommunication usage at home for work, and schedule flexibility have on employee work-life balance. It was predicted that employee schedule, family obligations, and telecommunication usage for work at home, would negatively predict work-life balance, and that these relationships would be moderated by segmentation preference. Two convenience datasets (n's = 163 and 78) were utilized for this study. Both datasets were analyzed using a series of ANOVA and regression tests. Hypothesis testing suggested that each of the independent variables significantly influenced one or more dimensions of work-life balance when moderated by employee segmentation preference, yielding mixed hypotheses support.
