Abstract: The study aimed to investigate the extent to which Lithuanian immigrants experience work – life conflict, taking into consideration different life domains, and to test how acculturation strategies and perceived social justice predict different types of work – non-work conflict. 503 Lithuanian immigrants (76% females; mean age 32.28 years; length of immigration 5.24 years) working in different European countries participated in this study. They completed the self-report online questionnaire that included Work Spillover into Family Life scale, Acculturative Behaviour scale, Perceived Social Justice scale, and socio demographic questions. The results showed that work – home management conflict significantly dominated over a work – leisure conflict in the group of working immigrants, and only those Lithuanian immigrants who have children reported higher work – parent conflict compared to other types of work – non-work conflict. Higher assimilation level predicted lower work – leisure and lower work – home management conflict while higher integration level was related to higher work – home management conflict. Higher scores of Perceived Social Justice scale were related to lower work – non-work life conflict
