The possible role of dual conflict role on job engagement and burnout has been a very important and hotly debated topic among experts in organizational behaviour areas. The aims of this study were to (1) integrating inter-role conflict theory with job-demand resource model, (2) provide a snapshot of how inter-role conflict influencing engagement and burnout among public officers. The data were gathered from 127 individuals employed at public organization located in around Bandung area, West Java. Results of the study has been analysed by using Partial Least Square. Findings show that: (1) The direct effect of work-family conflict (-0.268) and family-work conflict (-0.319) on job engagement was significant (p=0.05); (2) The direct effect of family-work conflict (0.246) on job burnout was also significant (p=0.05); (3) While the direct effect of work-family conflict (-0.04) on job burnout was not significant (p=0.05). The findings obtained indicate that the development of the inter-role conflict theory is relevant and applicable to the creation and maintenance of engaged public officers with their job. Partially, only family-work conflict that could affect whether public officers would be more burned with their job or not. Our findings contribute to the existing body of literature of how the different facets of inter-role conflict could have different effect on individuals’ engagement and burnout. Public organization should improvise extra attention over HR practices that contribute positively toward the decrease of inter-role conflict perceived by officers eventually accentuating employees’ level of engagement and burnout toward their job.
