Abstract: Drawing from the theoretical lens of COR theory, this study aimed at investigating the relationship between employees’ experience of eldercare burden and their job burnout. While explaining this relationship, this study also examines the mediating role of job stress and moderating role of psychological capital in this process. The data was collected from 340 employees working in hospitals and banks in Pakistan by employing a time-lag research design. Findings suggest that an important reason why employees’ experience of eldercare burden in their homes spillover to their workplace is that they feel overburdened by these demands. And this stress is translated into job burnout after multiple episodes of eldercare burden demands. The results of this study further suggest that this relationship is weaker for employees who can draw from their resources of psychological capital. In the last section, the theoretical implications, as well as strengths and limitations of this study, are explained. Future researchers have also given suggestions who are interested to enhance the body of knowledge as far as eldercare research is concerned. The study also provides guidelines for organizations to start giving importance to this ‘silent productivity killer’, if an effective, efficient and productive workplace is desired.
