This study investigated the impacts of flexible work hour and tenure on time-based work interference with family. The study comprised a Cross-sectional Survey of 118 female nurses between the ages of 27 to 59 years (M=40.35) at University of Nigerian Teaching Hospital and Orthopedic Hospital Enugu using Multi-stage sampling. Eight (8)-item Time-based Work Interference with Family Scale drawn from Okonkwo (2011) 32-item Work-family Conflict Scale was administered. 2x2 Analysis of Variance F-test revealed a significant influence of flexible work hour on time-based work interference with family F (1,117) = 19.96, p < .05 while tenure had no influence, F(1,117) = 0.07, p >. 05. These results were discussed in the light of Conservation of Resources Theory. It was concluded that flexible work hour has implications for time-based work interference with family among this segment of women.
