Summary/Abstract: Nowadays, more and more people dedicate their time and effort to work at the expense of personal life. This is a result of increasing professional and organizational demands. The situation on the market allows employers to extend working time. Unfortunately, employees accept this decisions. They are afraid to lose their positions. They invest in their skills and thereby enhance professional competence in order to preserve jobs. All activities directed at subordination of personal life to work, contribute to an imbalance between work and personal life. The result of these negative phenomena can be workaholism or unfortunately burnout. The Polish state, introducing legislation in the field of labor law, shows concern for employees as well as their families. It controls the behavior of employers, giving employees the opportunity to maintain a balance between work and personal life. Such a situation should be part of the culture of the organization and should be treated as the most important factors of strategic policy of the company.
