The objective of this study is to examine work life balance among employees in the workplace and COVID-19. The study adopted the descriptive survey research design. Three research questions guided the study. The population and sample were drawn form Anambra and Enugu states. The accessible population of this study comprised of 4768 employees (business administrators, contractors, lecturers) in Anambra and Enugu states, Nigeria. The sample of the study is 992 employees in the workplace, that is, business administrators, contractors, lecturers drawn using proportionate stratified sampling technique. The instrument for data collection is a questionnaire structured on a 4-point Likert scale. The data collected were analysed using mean and standard deviation. The findings of the study revealed that employees in the workplace strongly agreed to the indices of work life balance among employees in the workplace, they agreed to the challenges and the possible solutions of work life balance among employees in the workplace and COVID-19. It was concluded that most of these indices, challenges and solutions are triggered by the Nigeria unique workplace, culture and institutional framework that impact managing work life balance. On the other hand, given that the support of Nigerian government and non-government organizations is possibly in short supply, studies need to be carried out to further investigate this phenomenon for enhanced work life balance among employees in workplace in Nigeria.
