Structural equation modelling (SEM) is a statistical technique which is used for identifying the effect of independent variables on the dependent factors of a particular study. In this study, work-family conflict, family-work conflict, work load and responsibilities, family dependents, and work load and responsibilities were the independent variables, whereas work-life balance (WLB), job satisfaction, and quitting self-employment were the dependent factors. 210 samples were selected from married self-employed women respondents in Chennai. Collected data are subjected to confirmatory factor analysis and SEM model. It has found out that all the indices fits the model and such model has been accepted. Absence from work affects WLB at 0.18 value and, in turn, job satisfaction is increased by WLB at .94. As a result, quitting self-employment has been reduced by 0.97 level.
