Abstract
The study intends to examine the effect of occupational stress on life satisfaction among school teachers. The sample was consisted of 200 school teachers from private and public sector schools of Bhakkar city. Questionnaires are used to assess the response of teachers. Descriptive statistics, Regression analyses and independent sample t- test are used to examine the data. Main findings of the study reveal that higher occupational stress is related to lower life satisfaction ( = .52, p < .001). Significant gender differences are found, as female teachers reported more severe job stress as compared to male teachers (t = 2.09, p <.05). Findings also indicate that there is no significant difference in occupational stress in private teachers and public school teachers. In the last, some limitations and suggestions are also included to facilitate future research studies.
