Summary. The academic world of work has recently witnessed many changes, including a decrease in resources and an increase in demands. This study draws on the job demands-resources model as its theoretical framework. It investigates the relationship between certain resources (job autonomy, supervisors’ and colleagues’ support), demands (workload, emotional dissonance, workaholism), and the work-family conflict (WFC) in an Italian university. Relationships between the two subsamples, academics (n = 177) and administrative staff (n = 292) were examined. Hierarchical regression analysis revealed negative relationships between resources and the WFC but positive relationships between demands and the WFC. Findings highlight the relevance of information and training on the effects of the «overwork», in order to prevent and cope with the WFC, even through individual counseling.
