We drew on conservation of resources theory to investigate the relationships between family embeddedness, work–family conflict, family–work conflict, and employee turnover intention, thereby extending the literature relating to antecedents of turnover intention to the family domain. Participants were 175 employees of a construction company in China, who completed online surveys. Results showed that family embeddedness was negatively related to work–family conflict and family–work conflict, and that the relationship between family embeddedness and turnover intention was partially mediated by family–work conflict. Thus, we have obtained preliminary evidence that family-related factors influence individuals’ turnover intention. Our findings will help with identifying practical considerations around reducing turnover intention.
