Abstract

The present study was aimed to examine the relationship between job stress and job satisfaction among employees in one local authority’s organization at Kota Samarahan, Sarawak. A cross-sectional survey research was employed to conduct the study and the data for the study was collected using a self-administered survey questionnaire from a total of 61 employees. The data of the study was analysed using descriptive and inferential statistics, and a correlational analysis was used to test the research hypotheses. The results of the study indicated that the sub-components of the job stress that consist of role conflict and physical environment had significant relationships with job satisfaction. In overall, the findings of the study assist to provide a better understanding on specific job stress’s factors that affect employee’s job satisfaction particularly for the organizations under the local government or local authority in Malaysia.
