ABSTRACT The first purpose of this exploratory study was to add to the body of knowledge related to work-family conflict (WFC), particularly in the area of the impact of family members' health issues on careers. The second purpose was to address the impact of information technology security issues on salespeople's lives and careers. The authors designed and distributed a survey on work-family conflict and technology issues to 35 salespeople they knew. Items from two previously-developed scales were borrowed, and new items and questions were created. Significant differences related to work schedule and travel requirements were found with regard to length of employment, amount of time spent on selling tasks, and tension over how much time is spent on travel. Limitations and implications for future research are then addressed.
