This chapter examines the possibilities of the COVID-19 pandemic fostering more struggles and worries for employees’ work-life balance. It is assumed that two categories of employees are likely to face different and similar dimensions of challenges in balancing their work with lifestyles in this trying time – the remote workers and those still going to the workplace physically. Using Feldman’s approach to work-life balance, efforts are made to identify areas where the two categories of employees are likely to encounter different and similar dimensions of challenges of work-life balance occasioned by COVID-19. The chapter concludes that work-life balance has always been a concern of everyone interested in the quality of working life and this pandemic has brought a new dimension to it, which requires urgent attention of the employers and government to mitigate its effects on employees during this critical time.
