Content: Purpose
Work-family interference is defined as “a form of interrole conflict in which role pressures from the work and family domains are mutually incompatible in some respect” (Greenhaus & Beutell, 1985, p. 77). The literature suggests two types of work-family interference: role scarcity and role enhancement. The SWING questionnaire was developed to measure negative as well as positive work-home relations. The purpose of this study was: 1) to analyze the structural properties of the Lithuanian version of the SWING (Geurts et al., 2005) questionnaire; 2) to test its reliability; 3) to test the relationship between work-family interference and engagement, exhaustion and job satisfaction (Demerouti et al., 2004).
 Design/Methodology
641 employees from several organizations were surveyed using cross-sectional design. To analyze the data, confirmatory factor analysis, scale internal consistency test, and correlation analysis were conducted.
 Results
Confirmatory factor analysis partially supported the original four-factor structure of the questionnaire: negative WHI, negative HWI, positive WHI, and positive HWI. The internal consistency of all four factors was good. Moreover, the correlation analyses showed that work engagement and job satisfaction was positively related to PWHI and PHWI, and negatively related to NWHI and NHWI. Exhaustion was negatively related to PWHI and PHWI, and positively related to NWHI and NHWI.
 Limitations
The analyses are based on cross-sectional data.
 Research/Practical Implications
The study contributes to international efforts aimed at adaptation and validation of the SWING questionnaire.
 Originality/Value
This study allows to conclude that the Lithuanian version of SWING is a reliable tool for studying work-home interactions.
