Abstract: Necessitated by the increasing work-family conflict among the general adult populace, this study investigated the psycho-demographic (life orientation, ambiguity tolerance & sex) predictors of work-family conflict among employees of the Nigeria Maritime Industry in Lagos metropolis. With a sample size of 182 employees who were selected using a stratified sampling technique, data were collected using standardized questionnaires and analyzed with SPSS 20.0. The results showed that life orientation and ambiguity tolerance had significant joint and independent prediction on the work-family conflict of research participants. Further findings showed that there was no significant sex difference in work-family conflict among research participants. Consequently, the discussion and implication of findings, and the recommendations were presented in the paper.
